Conclusions about CEA, based upon 10 years of data collection, using the protocol outlined in the Cornell Lettuce Handbook: http://220.127.116.11/lab551/vegetable/culturalpractice/ten%20years%20of%20hydroponic%20lettuce%20research.pdf
In particular, the idea of having students create and test their own predictive model would be cool. The goal here is to estimate how big the plants are going to be before they’re finished so that you can forecast supply and minimize overproduction/waste based on demand. Keep in mind, this is all hydroponics - but the theory of Co2, DLI, air temp, etc. - I think that alone should be enough to predict if the rest is pretty constant.
