Juan Garcia Assistant Research Professor Juan Cabrera-Garcia and the research team at the University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC) are conducting a study to identify the knowledge and skills needed at different job hierarchies in the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) industry. The survey results will help UMKC identify relevant topics needed to develop curriculum focused on CEA.
