Precision Urban Agriculture refers to a new range of agronomic techniques that sharply limit the inputs that are used to grow food. By growing without soil; controlling environmental factors like lighting, temperature and humidity; and reducing the distance between production and consumers Precision Urban Agriculture can put healthy food on the plates of urban consumers and help our environment at the same time.
Berkeley Lab is leveraging its scientific resources and facilities to address the questions and support the technological innovation that will help this emerging field develop.
