Registration Now Open for Greenhouse Crop Production Short Course
Registration is now open for the 18th Annual Greenhouse Crop Production & Engineering Design Short Course, which takes place March 11-15, 2019, in Tucson, AZ. The four day conference, put on by the University of Arizona Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC), includes three full days of lectures, one day of hands-on training workshops at CEAC, and an optional commercial greenhouse tour at NatureSweet Tomatoes.
Seven Reasons to Attend the CEAC Short Course
• Advanced lectures will address some of the most common questions about growing under cover. Whether you rely on the sun and its warmth to tend your crops, or are growing some greens in an illuminated growth chamber, you can learn from controlled environment experts and advance your growing operation.
• Throughout its 18-year history, conference organizers have maintained essential components and lecture topics specific to crop production and engineering/design considerations, but have also adapted annually to address topics most relevant today.
• Networking opportunities with industry players and other like-minded enthusiasts can help you advance your operation. Meet with experts from academia, industry professionals, game-changing entrepreneurs, skilled growers, and a roster of CEAC students who are hungry to meet the industry’s labor demands.
• To ensure ample time for more comprehensive talks about cooling your greenhouse, plant responses to light, and why air uniformity is important, CEAC has re-introduced a morning session on the first day to begin with foundational lectures to frame the week.
• Bigger Questions, Better Answers: With ample time built into the program for Q+A, get the answers you need from engineering, biological, scientific, and economical perspectives.
• Review lectures after the event to fully absorb technical content or something you missed. Access to recordings is now included with general admission.
• CEAC’s unique facilities support a quality learning experience where students come to grab their education by the roots. On the fourth day of the Short Course, attendees can immerse themselves in training workshops at CEAC.
