Our research focuses on energy-efficient propagation and production of specialty crops in environmentally controlled greenhouses, vertical farms, growth rooms/containers, and warehouse-based plant factories. Our primary emphasis is on how light (quantity, quality, and duration) and substrate temperature during the young and finished plant stages influence crop timing, rooting, quality, and subsequent performance.
