Environmental challenges
Environmental Challenges Greenhouses and Landscapes

  • excess nutrients, pesticide displacement and water movement from irrigation

  • soil-less substrates, plastic containers and non-permeable groundcovers,

  • alter and enhance the off-site movement of pesticides and nutrients.


Environmental challenges1
Environmental Challenges Greenhouses and Landscapes

  • Urban landscape contributes to increased nutrient and pesticides in surface and ground waters.

Goals
GOALS Greenhouses and Landscapes

  • Economical methods to improve exiting water quality.

  • Self-contained and self-remediating with respect to runoff water.

  • Increase production efficiency.

  • New markets for ornamental plants, and the development of a better selection of landscape plants.

  • Transfer technology for implementation of the strategies and methodologies developed in this research.
