Areas of Expertise
• Environmental stress physiology
• Modeling and crop production under controlled environment
• Nutrient and salinity management for efficient use of water and fertilizer
• Micropropagation
Dr. Genhua Niu is an off campus faculty at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research Center at
El Paso with 100% Research Appointment. Her areas of special expertise are in
environmental stress physiology and plant production in controlled environment.
Her current research areas include identifying drought and salt tolerant low water
use plant materials for urban landscape, quantifying growth and physiological
responses of crops to drought, salt and heat stresses, and determining the minimum
water requirement for urban landscape plants for maintaining a healthy landscape
while conserving water. In addition,
Dr. Niu is also working on evaluating the salt and drought tolerance of a range of
bioenergy crops and vegetables for the semi-arid region. As a researcher at an
off campus research center, Dr. Niu closely works with county extension agents
on local extension programs.
She also collaborates with faculty members at the Department of Horticultural Sciences,
other research centers, and colleagues at other universities on research programs
and graduate student education by co-advising and serving as a graduate committee
member. In professional society service, Dr. Niu has been active by serving as officers
of several working groups for American Society for Horticultural Science and USDA
regional meetings.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Plant Factory: An Indoor Vertical Farming System for Efficient Quality Food Production provides information on a field that is helping to offset the threats that unusual weather and shortages of land and natural resources bring to the food supply.

As alternative options are needed to ensure adequate and efficient production of food, this book represents the only available resource to take a practical approach to the planning, design, and implementation of plant factory (PF) practices to yield food crops. The PF systems described in this book are based on a plant production system with artificial (electric) lights and include case studies providing lessons learned and best practices from both industrial and crop specific programs.

With insights into the economics as well as the science of PF programs, this book is ideal for those in academic as well as industrial settings.



  • Provides full-scope insight on plant farm, from economics and planning to life-cycle assessment
  • Presents state-of-the-art plant farm science, written by global leaders in plant farm advancements
  • Includes case-study examples to provide real-world insights
