ECONOMIC ASPECTS OF ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING ON CYCLAMEN

G. Neuray
When the objectives of applied research are dictated by economic needs, research can produce results which, even if they are not necessarily consistent with the fixed objectives, create a new economic situation completely different from the one expected.

The consequences of research work concerning the effects of artificial light on Cyclamen flowering give a very simple example from which we can establish the mutual connections between applied research and economics and show the limitations inherent in economic forecasting.
