    on the growth and morphology of tomato seedlings was studied. Tomato seedlings were grown under the 658 nm red LEDs or the red LED supplemented with two irradiation levels of the UV-A. The growth and development of tomato seedlings were significantly enhanced under the red lightred lightSubject Category: Miscellaneous

    supplemented with the UV-A. Under the UV-A treatments, the tomato seedlings became more compact, the growth of plant organs was balanced, the leaf arealeaf areaSubject Category: Properties

    was increased, and the total plant fresh and dry weights were also enhanced. Our findings suggested that the 376 nm UV-A from LEDs had a beneficial effect on the growth and development of tomato seedlings as similarly to the blue light.
