In the United States, the greenhouse industry covers more than 15,000 acres and is supported by a diverse number of firms with employee expertise in greenhouse manufacturing, engineering, irrigation, horticulture, IPM, sales, marketing, and business management. The greenhouse industry is in need of highly trained undergraduates having higher-order thinking(More)
Four cultivars (Blitz, Mariachi, Quest and Rapsodie) of tomato were grown hydroponically on rockwool in two microclimates (east and west) inside the greenhouse (Tucson, AZ) under two nutrient solution electrical conductivity (EC) levels (2.6 or 4.5 dS m-1), adjusted by adding NaCl and CaCl 2 after the setting of first fruit truss. In all cultivars, total(More)
Increasing numbers of vegetable growers purchase their transplants from specialized transplant producers. Possible deterioration of transplants during transportation limits the market size as well as the potential sources of high quality transplants. To determine best conditions for transportation of seedlings, tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum; 'Durinta')(More)
This paper proposes a Systems Modeling Language (SysML)-based simulation model aggregation framework to develop aggregated simulation models with high accuracy. The framework consists of three major steps: 1) system conceptual modeling, 2) simulation modeling, and 3) additive regression model-based parameter estimation. SysML is first used to construct the(More)
An overview of the design considerations and the operational characteristics for production of tomato in greenhouse in semi-arid region is provided. The integration of the automation, culture and environment requires an understanding of the production needs of the crop, and the specialized weather conditions of the Arizona climate. The plant microclimate,(More)

A web-based, multi-faceted educational instrument for the greenhouse Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) Program has been under development at The University of Arizona. The educational deliverables will include, not only libraries of information related to CEA, but also living laboratories with access to historical and real time climate data, and live(More)
