Abstract:

The study entitled “Effect of LED Lights on Fodder Production in Pipe Framed Hydroponic Structure”. The field experiments were laid out in factorial randomized block design with 19 treatments and 3 replications for maize crop. The treatments consisted of two LED’s reddish purple and white, three durations viz., 4 h, 8 h and 12 h and three LED light intensity levels viz., 480 lux, 740 lux and 930 lux along with control treatment. The maximum plant height, fresh weight and chlorophyll content of maize using reddish purple LED was found to be 23.807 cm, 2.672 kg and 25.226 mg/g, respectively. The maximum plant height, fresh weight and chlorophyll content of maize using 12 h LED duration was found to be 24.144 cm, 2.749 kg and 25.356 mg/g, respectively. The maximum plant height, fresh weight and chlorophyll content of maize using LED light intensity of 930 lux was found to be 24.689 cm, 2.843 kg and 26.006 mg/g, respectively. It was found that reddish purple LED, 12 h duration of LED and LED light intensity of 930 lux showed better desirable results compared to white LED and control, 4 h and 8 h duration of LED and light intensity of 740 lux and 480 lux.
