2. In summer, under direct sunlight, the light intensity can reach 60,000-100,000 lux. For vegetables, the light saturation point of most vegetables is between 30,000-60,000 lux, such as hot pepper: 30,000 lux, eggplant:40,000 lux and cucumber: 55,000 lux.

3. Excessive light will have a great impact on vegetable photosynthesis, resulting in carbon dioxide absorption hindered, excessive respiratory intensity and so on. This is how the phenomenon of photosynthesis "noon break" occurs under natural conditions.
