Environmental, Chemical, and Genetic Reduction of Ethylene Sensitivity in Crop Plants
13 Ethylene is an endogenously synthesized plant hormone that dissipates quickly in field conditions and seldom exceeds five nmol mor • Ethylene can accumulate to 1000 times this level in closed
Agrobacterium-Mediated Transformation of Tomato Elicits Unexpected Flower Phenotypes with Similar Gene Expression Profiles
This is the first report that dominant flower mutations could be caused by genetic transformation designed to knock out two nutrient stress related genes.
Four genetic loci control compact plant size with yellow pear‐shaped fruit in ornamental tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.)
This work performed genetic analyses using an intraspecific mapping population that segregated for fruit color, fruit shape, and plant height to investigate genetic loci linked to desired ornamental traits and developed SNP markers that were tightly linked to the four loci.
System Identification - Soilless Growth of Tomatoes
This work applies the Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) method with the features based on classic Fishman and Genard model of fruit growth and considers several combinations of those to select a small number of the features providing best fit to the observed data.
Yield of dwarf tomatoes grown with a nutrient solution based on recycled synthetic urine.
A series of plant cultivation experiments performed with synthetic urine processed in a bioreactor show that cultivation of tomato plants with this solution is generally feasible, but that the plants are less productive.
Early seedling response of six candidate crop species to increasing levels of blue light.
This study examines the influence of monochromatic and dichromatic red and blue light on the early development of six food crop species and the nature of the responses reported inform both bioregenerative life-support designs as well as light quality selection for the production of controlled environment crops.
Protected Agriculture in Extreme Environments: A Review of Controlled Environment Agriculture in Tropical, Arid, Polar, and Urban Locations
Abstract. Many methods of protected agriculture are used to modify the growing environment of plants. Ideally, plant production would take place in regions that do not require protective structures,
The natural ventilation augmented cooling (NVAC) greenhouse: design development, analysis of greenhouse climate, and plant response
Greenhouses create an optimal growing environment for crops through climate control and protection from harsh weather and pests. This research project assessed the current challenges that exist
Enabling Precision Agriculture Through Embedded Sensing With Artificial Intelligence
This article presents an embedded system enriched with the AI, ensuring the continuous analysis and in situ prediction of the growth dynamics of plant leaves, and relies on the state-of-the-art mobile graphical chips for “smart” analysis and control of autonomous devices.
