Elyssa Rothe, Director of Policy & Program Development at Greenworks Lending talks about C-PACE (Commercial – Property Assessed Clean Energy) financing, an affordable solution to the steep upfront costs of installing lighting, heating, and cooling systems in greenhouses.
Strawberries production in greenhouses and indoor farms represents an uprising market that offers the potential for CEA growers to diversify and remain competitive. In this webinar, Dr. Chieri Kubota from Ohio State University will discuss the opportunities of off-season strawberry production under controlled environments. Date: December 12th, 2019
Carbon dioxide enrichment has long been known as a tool to boost greenhouse crop yield but the benefits depend on the crop and production environment especially light. In this webinar, Cornell University researchers will discuss: The basics of greenhouse CO2 enrichment. Current research underway to determine response of tomatoes and strawberries on light and CO2. […]
When choosing dehumidification equipment, there are a number of variables that have to be considered to ensure that it operates effectively with the crop and production facility. In this webinar Dr. Nadia Sabeh discusses: How to transition from indoor production facilities to greenhouses. How to select a dehumidification system. The impact of plants on dehumidification. […]
Jonny Reader, research associate at the University of Nottingham and design engineer at V-Farm talked about the current fruit and vegetable market in the UK and insecurities surrounding Brexit. Date: September 18th, 2019
Executive director Erico Mattos discusses changes to the CEA market based on USDA Census of Agriculture data.
Light is the driving energy source for photosynthesis and carbohydrate accumulation in plants. During propagation, cuttings and seedlings require a minimum quantity of light to provide the energy for root initiation and development. Light intensities below this minimum result in little or no root development, leading to a delayed crop or rooting failure. Conversely, too […]
Dr. Kevin Folta from University of Florida and Dr. Bruce Bugbee from Utah State University discuss the “Effects of lighting on phenolics production in crops cultivated in CEA systems” with GLASE industry members.
Recent advances in light-emitting diode (LED) technology now provide the horticultural industry with multiple lighting options. However, growers are often unable to compare technologies and LED options due to insufficient data on lamp performance metrics. As a result, researchers are now proposing a standardized product label that facilitates the comparison of lamps across manufacturers. Dr. A.J. […]
