Vegetable Science Laboratory

Research

We have researched on the physiological responses of vegetable crops to various environmental conditions that influence their growth and development, and the development of plant production systems. Major areas of our researches include propagation, production and distribution, abiotic stress, grafting, vegetable quality and production in the open field and in the protected environment.

Currently, our researches are focused on the plant responses of leafy vegetables under various lighting conditions such as monochromic lights and their combinations, non 24-hour lighting cycles, the promotion of propagation rate of strawberry transplants by adapting new propagation methods and manipulating environmental conditions, the enhancement of phytochemicals in leafy and fruit vegetable crops, the utilization of agricultural by-products such as spent mushroom media and non-edible portions of vegetables, the development of advanced vegetable production systems for efficient and safe production of sprouts and baby-leaf vegetables. We have also conducted the researches related to sustainable vegetable production system and various issues faced by vegetable production industry.

With focused and collaborative studies, we aim to better understand how plants response to environmental factors and to develop better vegetable production systems that bring more benefits to growers, consumers, and the Earth.
