›Agrospace: Controlled Environment Agriculture from Earth to Space and back
The 2010 Agrospace Workshop is focused on the continuum of food production systems whose demands and requirements within the restrictions of a hazardous Space environment, or a resource-limited Earth biosphere, each having similar goals of life-support and maintenance of quality of life.
This 4th Agrospace Workshop will capitalize on the successes within the Space research and development community for CE (Controlled Environments), and the recent surge of CEA (Controlled Environment Agriculture) on Earth, to improve the knowledge base, to create a greater user awareness, and help to promote economic development for industry that will feed our current world, and our worlds of the future. Expectations, ranging from traditional farms with greenhouse controlled environments to the unproven systems for urban agriculture, have been dramatic and distributed among many climate regions of the Earth in response to the increased consumer demand of high quality, locally grown, safe foods with efficient use of controlled inputs, and reduced outputs of system byproducts.
