In line with the Ohio State University Extension vision, mission and values, Kubota Lab’s program contributes to the following areas.
- Science-based problem solving for stakeholders locally, nationally and internationally.
- Creating opportunities for innovations by applying science-based knowledge encompassing crop physiology and technology.
- Communicating with stakeholders to inform technology advancement.
- Professional education (non-credit online courses) to respond to the needs of our stakeholders.
This is an area where Dr. Chieri Kubota has focused in her outreach/extension program using online technologies. More courses will be developed in the near future.
- Greenhouse plant physiology and technology (9-week online course taught in 2011-2016)
- Custom course of greenhouse plant physiology (hybrid course for private group, please contact Dr. Kubota)
- Custom one-day course of hydroponic tomato basics (for private group, please contact Dr. Kubota)
- Custom one-day course of hydroponic strawberry basics (for private group, please contact Dr. Kubota)
This blog serves as a platform to introduce recent scientific and technological milestone works that help further advancement of CEA (Controlled Environment Agriculture).
We have developed the following resources. More courses will be developed in the near future.
