Course Fee: $299

“Introduction to Greenhouse Environmental Control for Crop Production” is a 13-week certificate course designed and offered by ADVANCEA. The course will provide students with foundational information about the essentials of greenhouse environment control for a variety of commonly-grown crops. The course is designed to be equivalent to an upper-level college course and requires entry-level understanding of modern greenhouse production systems.

During this course, students will:

  • Review greenhouse crop production systems and management strategies
  • Be able to describe why and how important environmental parameters are controlled using sensors and control systems
  • Gain sufficient insight in the basics of energy and mass transfer to understand the key plant environment interactions in greenhouses
  • Learn the basics of sensors and control logic to optimize greenhouse conditions
  • Become familiar with recent developments in greenhouse control strategies
  • A close-up of a machine

Course instructors include researchers from the U.S. and the Netherlands (Delphy):

  • Dr. A.J. Both, Rutgers University
  • Dr. Murat Kacira, University of Arizona
  • Dr. Chieri Kubota, Ohio State University
  • Dr. Peter Ling, Ohio State University
  • Dr. Guil Signorini, Ohio State University
  • Dr. Ken Tran, Koidra Inc.
  • Dr. Fengqi You, Cornell University
  • Dr. Laura Bautista, Delphy
  • Lisanne Helmus-Schuddebeurs, Delphy
  • Stijn Jochems, Delphy
  • Alex van Klink, Delphy
  • Max van den Hemel, Delphy

This course is specifically designed for individuals with a non-engineering background and entry-level understanding of controlled environment crop production in greenhouses.

This course can be taken synchronously (live) or asynchronously (via recordings)
