I never really got into far red, ive stumbled across threads a few times, what does it change?
Common idea used to be that its not good for the plants, but i have read newer stuff that says that it actually bulks up the buds and is the reason why HPS light is good at making fat buds. Im sure people will debate on this, i dont claim to know the truth for certain, but i am leaning that on the side that far red is good for the plant. Ofc too much is too much and too far red would not help and would only be heat.

a number of things... as End of Day treatment its putting the plants into respiration immediately so you gain increased flowering hormone levels. or extra lighting time...
Plus you could supplement this radiation throughout the day and gain add. photosynthesis from rays that penetrate deep but may cause stretch. but your UV setup should prevent that to some extend ...

btw arent you afraid the UV damages the diodes?
