This week’s UH News Image of the Week is from University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s Kent Kobayashi, associate horticulturist in the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources.
Kobayashi shared “Artificial lighting with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to hydroponically grow vegetable crops indoors in our laboratory. Controlled environment agriculture (indoor farming, vertical farming, plant factories) can help reduce the amount of water, fertilizers, and pesticides used in growing food crops more efficiently. Controlled environment agriculture can help make Hawaiʻi more food self-sufficient, ensure sustainable food production, and increase food security.”
