Infrared (780-1000nm): Unlikely to influence crops’ taste and smell
Far-red (700-780nm): Likely to influence a crop’s flavor and aroma, but where it enhances, some it ruins others
Red Light (620-700nm): No noteworthy influence on taste and smell
Yellow-Orange (575-620nm): No noteworthy influence on taste and smell
Green (500-575nm): No noteworthy influence on taste and smell
Blue-Violet (400-500nm): Enhances seemly all crop species’ taste and smell
UV-A (315-400nm): Likely to enhance most crop species’ taste and smell
UV-B (280-315nm): Likely to enhance a crop’s taste and smell, but too light will impair photosynthesis in most crops
UV-C (100-280nm): Potentially too dangerous to use but may increase secondary metabolites and phenolic content, however, this may only result in better resistance to diseases
