Controlled Environment Agriculture

Contact Us

We are located on Cornell University's Main Campus in Ithaca, N.Y. We meet as a group every Friday morning and welcome guests at that time or selected alternate pre-arranged times. We no longer have access to the commercial demonstration facility that is now called 'Finger Lakes Fresh' and cannot arrange a tour there. We also do not have a working greenhouse on campus to demonstrate the technologies that we have experimented with through the years. We continue to work in growth chambers and small greenhouses on selected aspects of hydroponic vegetable production. Our larger scale commercial production work lives on through photographs and papers that may be found on our Resources and Publications page.
