US (AZ): Kick off 2017 at CEAC Hydroponic Crop Production Courses

Kick off the new year right by grabbing a vine and swinging into the CEAC Education Greenhouses!

The UofA Controlled Environment Agriculture Center Hydroponic Greenhouse Crops Production Intensive Courses will be held in Tucson January 2nd – 9th.

The annual intensive courses focusing on hydroponic tomato and lettuce cultivation are back again. 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 - combining classroom time with hands-on training 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.


You can attend just the Tomato specific course from January 2 – 7, just the lettuce specific course from January 6 – 9, or attend both courses from January 2 – 9. Select lectures may be participated in online.

The courses also include useful events such as an engineering roundtable discussion and face-to-face time with experts on your special questions, as well as networking time with personal follow-ups that phone and social contacts bring.
Registration has already began to fill up and space is very limited to 25 seats - to ensure a quality education and experience.
A fast approaching deadline for reduced lodging rates is December 3rd. This causes an influx of registrations during November, so sign-up before then because space is limited.
