In response to drought conditions, urban population growth, and dwindling water supplies in Utah, Utah State University (USU) Extension implemented a study using soil moisture meters.
UC has been heavily involved in research and extension efforts impacting landscape water conservation legislation for over 30 years.
A soil moisture sensor-based automated irrigation system was trialed in a commercial floriculture greenhouse to determine what benefits these types of systems may offer to herbaceous ornamental producers.
Understanding carbon footprint (CF) terminology and the science underlying its determination is important to minimizing the negative impacts of new product development and assessing positive or negative cradle-to-grave lifecycle impacts.
Irrigation scheduling in container nurseries is challenging due to the wide range of plant production conditions that must be accounted for at any given time.
Supplemental lighting can enhance yield when sunlight is limited, as in winter. As the effect
of frequent cloudy or rainy days in other seasons on plant growth and yield remains unclear,
