The second ‘Indoor Ag Science Café’ of this month had Dr. Cary Mitchell, as a speaker. Funded by NASA and USDA SCRI, Cary has a long research history focusing on energy savings while maximizing crop productivities through his in-depth understanding of plant physiology under controlled environment. In his presentation ‘Lighting Strategies for Energy Savings’ introduced his innovative approach to optimize the lighting environment. Indoor Ag Science Café is a monthly online forum organized by three scientists (Chieri Kubota, Ohio State U; Erik Runkle, Michigan State U; and Cary Mitchell, Purdue U).
