Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is a technologically advanced and intensive form of agriculture where plants grow within a controlled, enclosed environment to optimize horticultural practices. It includes several indoor farming styles from single-level greenhouses to more compact vertical farming. CEA can produce a high yield of crops per unit area all year round, creating a resilient and robust supply chain for fresh produce to build nutrition security in remote areas.

The CEA project will support research and education in the field, generate a skilled workforce, built out training and applied learning for faculty, teachers, and students, and upgrade facilities on UW and partner community college campuses.
