Comparative studies were conducted on morphofunctional parameters of lettuce (Lactuca sativa) plants cultivated with the use of supplementary lighting from different light sources - LED lamps, high-pressure mercury arc lamp (HPM) and high-pressure sodium arc lamp (HPS). The work showed that morphofunctional parameters of lettuce were significantly higher with LED lighting, in comparison to plants cultivated with HPM illumination, and main parameters of leaves grown under LED were barely discernible from the samples grown under HPS lighting. We observed accelerated transfer into reproductive period during HPM lighting, what can lead to quality degradation of the product. Considering the approximate values of leaf character range in experiments with HPS and LED lighting and greater energy efficiency of LED, light emitting diodes are obviously more promising for supplementary illumination in protected ground conditions.
