Energy-Use-Efficiency Differences Between LED Supplemental Lights under Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) and Constant Flood Table (CFT) Systems- Alex Miller, Krishna Nemali, Petrus Langenhoven

Using energy efficient light emitting diodes (LED) and heated nutrient solution (21°C) (HNS) in suboptimal greenhouse air temperatures (16°C), electrical energy use efficiency (EUE) (g·KWh-1) can be optimized to reduce production costs. Our objective was to compare EUE differences between nutrient film technique (NFT) and constant flood table (CFT) systems under LED lighting treatments with
