01 CEA Systems

CEA Systems is a privately held corporation based in Ithaca, NY. CEA Systems, in partnership with the Cornell Research Foundation, is charged with the development and the deployment of Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) technology. CEA is based on developments in lighting control and horticultural practices from the research groups of Louis D. Albright, Biological and Environmental Engineering, and Robert W. Langhans, Floriculture and Ornamental Horticulture. CEA is the enabling technology for a new paradigm in twenty-first century agriculture. No longer limited to searching for a plant adapted to the environment, it is now possible, on a commercial scale, to provide the desired environment for the plant. Cornell University is a leader in this emerging discipline, holding significant intellectual property on the subject.
