- The CEAC is offering the 2016 Intensive Courses on Hydroponic Tomato and/or Hydroponic Lettuce Production in Tucson, AZ. You can attend the Tomato specific course from January 3 - 8, the Lettuce specific course from January 8 - 10, or both courses from January 3 - 10. Where else can you receive a semester of university coursework in one week? The hydroponic crop intensives feature over a semester’s worth of course content presented strategically throughout the week to allow business professionals and growers to minimize their time away from home. The courses will combine classroom time with time in the greenhouse in order to put the lessons learned by lecture into real world practice. The Intensive Courses start from the beginning, but move quickly and are meant for growers of all levels. As an experienced industry professional who attended the 2015 course wrote, “This course was the best short course I have taken during my career. The mix of hands-on learning and lecture is just right. The students came from diverse parts of our industry and definitely added to the experience. Hats off to U of A’s CEAC, leaders in our industry.” CEAC invites you to come to Tucson to learn about hydroponic greenhouse growing and enjoy the warm winter weather! The Tomato Intensive instructor will be hydroponic specialist Dr. Pat Rorabaugh, while the Lettuce Intensive will be taught by lettuce/business expert Myles Lewis, MS.
