Speaker: Joshua Craver, Assistant Professor at Colorado State University

Session Title:  Lighting and CO2 Management and Optimization

Sunday, July 11  11:00 AM - 11:45 AM

Description: Plants need light and carbon dioxide (CO2). Yet how often do you measure, manage, and optimize these production inputs in your greenhouse? We’ll explore plant responses to light and CO2, identify strategies for supplying supplemental light and CO2, and discuss scenarios when it would make sense to provide supplemental light and/or supplemental CO2 in your greenhouse. 

Level: All Audiences           Type: Research

Session Speakers:

Jennifer Boldt, Research Horticulturist at USDA Agricultural Research Service
Joshua Craver, Assistant Professor at Colorado State University

Joshua Craver

Assistant Professor at Colorado State University 

Joshua Craver, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Controlled Environment Horticulture, Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Colorado State University. Dr. Joshua Craver's research focuses on enhancing vegetable and floriculture crop production in controlled environments. His work aims to evaluate whole-plant physiological and morphological responses to 1) optimize the timing and extent of production inputs; 2) improve the efficient and sustainable use of natural resources; and 3) increase the productivity and quality of crops produced in controlled environments. In Project LAMP, Dr. Craver will assess plant photobiology and lighting optimization for both greenhouse (supplemental lighting) and indoor (sole-source lighting) production of floriculture crops using light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
