Christopher J. Currey
Associate Professor, Department of Horticulture, Iowa State University
My controlled-environment and greenhouse crop research is focused on providing research-based best-management practices to support commercial producers of ornamental and food crops to improve productivity, profitability, and sustainability using and managing light, temperature, mineral nutrition, and plant growth regulators. My scholarship spans across all three areas of my appointment. In my scholarship of teaching and learning, I strive to identify effective methods to increase student confidence and success in greenhouse crop production and increase student understanding of timely and important related to greenhouse crop production, such as local food security and native plant production.
