Chieri Kubota – Video on Optimizing Plant Performance

Chieri Kubota’s video published on the SciTechReports YouTube channel on June 11, 2012 titled “Optimizing Plant Performance – Plants Spliced, LED Lights Glow, & Strawberries Bloom” addresses the need for plants to have specific colors of LED lights including far red (2:20), red (2:45), and blue (3:17) to engineer plants with superior traits. She also mentions enhancing the flavor of strawberries in a controlled environment (4:38), lack of strawberries grown in green houses in the United States as opposed to Japan (5:02), chemical fumigants to control pest and disease in crops not grown in a controlled environment (5:12), and that a strawberry crop is a good candidate for local production with better worker efficiency and production (5:44).
