To conduct fundamental and developmental research on new and improved application technologies to protect floricultural, nursery, landscape, turf, horticultural, and field crops against damage from diseases, pests, and adverse environmental conditions, while safeguarding environmental quality, food and worker safety. To enhance competitiveness and profitability of controlled environment agriculture (including nursery, greenhouse, high tunnel, vertical farming, plant factory, and other similar systems) through improved engineering of environmental controls, increased efficiency of crop production inputs (water, fertilizer, and other inputs), advances in pest management, and improvement of crop adaptability to these environments.
The Application Technology Research is located in Wooster, OH and is part of the Midwest Area.
The Research Leader is James Altland.
