Response of Leaf Lettuce (Lactuca Sativa) To Different Levels of Light Intensity Reduction Using Fishnet

            Light intensity in the tropics appears to be too much during some period of the day. Plants suffer dehydration by showing partly willed leaves if exposed to the highest intensity. This experiment was conceptualized to determine what level of light intensity reduction would give a good response on leaf lettuce.

The experiment was laid out in a RCBD experiment with three treatments replicated three times.

The study revealed that light intensity reduction gave significant differences among treatments in plant in terms of height, number of leaves formed, weight and palatability.
