Abstract If light penetrates the crop better, it results in higher production. This is because the leaves that are deeper in the crop are a long way from their light saturation point. Diffuse glass or coatings and the distribution of the crop are the most applicable ways to achieve better light penetration. Other methods are usually beyond the reach of the grower
