Abstract Light could be an important factor as to whether a plant is sensitive to fungal infestation or not. This is a whole new angle because until now only the relationship with the greenhouse climate was considered: perhaps it’s too dry, too wet, too warm or too cold. Even at a high RH a plant doesn’t need to suffer from disease, according to the researchers Jantineke Hofland-Zijlstra and Luc Stevens. They are carrying out fundamental research on plant immunity in relation to light.
