The Ferrarezi laboratory has most equipment needed for Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) research, outreach, and education.
In terms of large equipment, it includes two Mini-PAM fluorometers and two Junior-PAM fluorometers (Heinz Walz GmbH, Germany), one monitoring chlorophyll fluorometer with four independent sensing heads, two fluorometers (FluorPen; PSI, Czech Republic), three leaf gas exchange systems (CIRAS-4, CIRAS-3 and TARGAS-1; PP Systems, Amesbury, MA), one automatic potentiometric titrator (HI931; Hannah, Smithfield, RI), one chroma meter (CR410; Konica Minolta, Chiyoda City, Tokyo, Japan), one leaf spectrometer (CI-710S SpectraVue;; CID Biosciences, Camas, WA), two bench leaf area meters (LI-3100C; Licor, Lincoln, NE), two spectroradiometers (Apogee, Logan, UT), and a spectrometer (Unispec, Dublin), a multitude of light and soil moisture sensors (Meter, Pullman, WA), three forced air drying ovens (Shel Lab/Sheldon Manufacturing, Cornelius, OR), and facilities and equipment to construct custom LED lights.
We also have a state-of-the-art canopy imaging system (TopView; Aris, Eindhoven, the Netherlands)), which can do multispectral and chlorophyll fluorescence imaging and a custom multispectral imaging system for chlorophyll fluorescence, refractometers (HI96801; Hanna Instruments, Woonsocket, RI), numerous pH and electrical conductivity meters (Hanna Instruments, Woonsocket, RI)), large and precision scales, dataloggers (CR1000X and CR6; Campbell Scientific, Logan, UT) and multiple accessories such as multiplexers and relay drivers, thermal cameras (E5; Flir, Wilsonville, OR), drone (Mavic Air 2; DJI, China), two leaf chlorophyll content (CCM-200 Plus; Opti-Sciences, Hudson NH), and two anthocyanin content (ACM-200 Plus; Opti-Sciences, Hudson NH).
For education, we have a 65-Inch digital flipchart for business with a touch screen to facilitate interactive presentations for growers and academics.
Computing: We have multiple desktop computers, and general software like statistical packages are available (SAS and Sigma Plot). All laboratory facilities have high-speed internet connections for communication with other researchers.
Vehicles: Dr. Ferrarezi has vehicle access through the University of Georgia Department of Horticulture.
