Abstract

The foundation of all plant production systems is the effective, efficient and dependable means of nutrient delivery to the plant. The nutrient delivery system directly influences the physical components and the plant culture tasks of the plant management technique within the controlled environment agriculture system. The nutrient delivery system can be described in terms of its mechanism for water delivery to the plant. Examples of an aeroponic root growth system, and a traditional tomato production system, within the controlled environment facilities at the University of Arizona, Controlled Environment Agriculture Center are provided.
