Abstract

To explore the light intensity suitable for the growth of purple leaf lettuce seedlings in plant factories and greenhouses, the effects of light intensity of 6000, 12000, 18000, 24000 and 30000 lx on growth morphology, nutritional quality, photosynthetic pigment and photosynthetic characteristics of purple leaf lettuce seedlings were studied with ‘Beizisheng 3’ as the experimental material under the condition of white light quality unchanged. The results showed that under the light intensity of 30000 lx, purple leaf lettuce seedlings grew well and the biomass, chlorophyll a content, chlorophyll b content, carotenoid content, total chlorophyll, soluble protein content, soluble sugar content, vitamin C content, anthocyanin content, net photosynthetic rate, transpiration rate and stomatal conductance were the largest, while the nitrate content and intercellular CO2 concentration were the lowest. However, chlorophyll b content, carotenoid content, soluble protein content and transpiration rate had no significant difference compared with those under 24000 lx light intensity, and the plant height was the highest under 24000 lx light intensity. Under the condition of white light quality, the most suitable light intensity for the growth of purple leaf lettuce seedlings is 30000 lx.
