Grow Lights: What is Yield Photon Curve?
February 2, 2019
The difference in the efficacy of the varied color spectrums of light on actual photosynthesis is called the quantum efficiency curve, or yield photon flux (YPF) curve.
If you take measurements using a standard quantum flux meter under a lamp that generates only blue light, you are going to get good PPF and PPFD values, even though blue light is less efficient at stimulating photosynthesis than red light.
