What is the CEAC "Covering Enviornments" Seminar Series?

At the Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC) of the University of Arizona we strive to provide our students, faculty, staff, volunteers and community aficionados with important developments in areas that touch directly and indirectly on our academic and applied endeavors. Our Covering Environments monthly seminar series is especially well-suited to provide such information, bring our stakeholders together for networking and for gaining new and relevant knowledge.

So, if you have wondered what really goes on beneath the surface of the plants you and we grow, if you are curious about how CEAC collaborates with like minded units at the UofA, if plant pests seem to get the better of your treasured produce, or if you are curious about new approaches to controlled and field agriculture designed to reduce water consumption and minimize carbon foot prints in food production, then, this series will satisfy your needs and thirst (intended pun) for new knowledge.
