Abstract

The Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) technologies are helping in producing vegetables in the icy areas of Antarctica. The CEA-based hydroponic crop production processes used the abundant frozen fresh water, as an alternative food growth chamber to produce vegetables. University of Arizona and Sadler Machine Company, under the Controlled Environment Agriculture Program (UA-CEAC) designed and built the new South Pole Food Growth Chamber (SPFGC) under the direction of the National Science Foundation, which manages the US Antarctic Program. Antarctica provides an unique application for CEA technologies, which can grow plants anywhere, any time, with planning and resources.
