LIGHT MANAGEMENT DURING CUTTING PROPAGATION IN NEW ZEALAND©

P. Fisher
Propagation of cuttings with sunlight as the sole light source is the most common situation in commercial plant nurseries. In that situation, greenhouse shading is the most important factor to manage in order to ensure that light is in an acceptable range for rapid root and shoot growth. When excess shade is applied, light is limiting to photosynthesis and growth. In contrast, excess light is likely to result in dehydration and heat stress of plants.
