What is PAR?

PAR stands for Photosynthetic Active Radiation. PAR is the amount of light that’s usable to plants- those wavelengths that will be used for photosynthesis. Just like the difference between a growing area and a canopy, PAR is not the measure of all of the light a grow light gives off, but the measurement of the wavelengths plants will absorb.

PPF stands for Photosynthetic Photon Flux. This is a critical metric that tells us how much PAR a light-source emits.
