Our research focuses on energy-efficient propagation and production of floriculture crops in controlled greenhouse and semi-controlled high tunnel environments. 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.

Flowering Physiology of New Greenhouse Crops
Photosynthetic daily light integral (DLI) is an important variable closely related to growth and quality of greenhouse grown crops. DLI can be a limiting factor for greenhouse production especially during winter and early spring, when most floriculture crops are propagated. Outdoors, it can range from 5 to 10 mol.m-2.d-1 in the northern part in the United States (U.S.)
