Abstract: The effect of LED illumination on plant growth and development has been investigated for years. However, most of the works focused on plant morphology. Recently, investigations have shifted to the effect on the accumulation of plant functional chemicals. This paper reviews the latest research in this area and the problems encountered. Some research ideas and possible future directions are discussed.
