DiscussionsCategory: Agricultural ScienceIs sunlight the only source of light for photosynthesis?
Cliff ImasuenClassHall Instructor Staff asked 3 years ago

Plants manufacture their own food from light in a process called photosynthesis. Plants convert carbon dioxide from air and water into simple sugars. These sugars produce the required fuel for a plant’s growth.

Is sunlight the only kind of light that can trigger this process? Can man-made lights such as lights from electric bulbs be used to simulate sunlight that can make photosynthesis happen?

Plants need light to photosynthesize, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be sunlight. If the correct type of artificial light is used, photosynthesis can happen at night with lights that contain blue and red wavelengths
