If placing 2 seed trays so as to add up to an approx 42 " length, would 1 48" strip light be sufficient ? If only 1 strip light would be enough for such a set up, at what point would a 2nd strip light be recommended as trays are added to broaden the field depth? Ie., a rectangular field of about 22/ 44/ 66 inches? etc. Thank you!
Yes 1 48" LED light would be sufficient for a 42" setup. When to add extra grow lights is going to be very dependent on your setup. The best way will be a bit of trial and error but you just want full light coverage with no shading.

How many square feet does one unit cover in terms of growing lettuce. What is the recommended distance from maturing lettuce plants on a cut and come again lettuce set up?
Growing lettuce is unique for lighting requirements. The lights need to be pretty close to the plant canopy 12" to 18".
The 4 foot LED we have are cool blue white and good starting point for small systems. You need 2 four foot lights to cover a 24” X 48” (2x4) shelf front and back of the trays. Two lights per self is minimum for successful coverage of the plants. I usually refer to Farmer Tyler and his lighting videos.
