New vertical farm forum created by controlled environment ag scientists


Join three CEA scientists (Chieri Kubota, Erik Runkle and Cary Mitchell) who are organizing an online monthly forum series, called ‘Indoor Ag Science Café’. This online forum has been designed to discuss the science and technologies that can contribute to indoor controlled environment agriculture (AKA vertical farms). According to Chieri, “we wish to make the forum develop as a non-competitive, informal communication platform among indoor agriculture industries”.

Please contact Chieri Kubota ( if you would like to join the Café.

The most recent topic presented by Erik Runkle at the Café is now available:


  1. What info/discussion/guidance/rules/regs is out there on vision protection of growers in constant presence of LED grow lights?

    Apologies if this has been covered prior to my recent discovery of this site.
