- ... Brassica is an important vegetable and oilseed crop. Increased temperature due to climate change may have detrimental effects on Brassica performance. Therefore, seed germination studies were conducted to determine the effect of temperature and hydropriming on germination and seedling growth of Brassica species. Four Brassica species (‘Wang bujang’ (Brassica rapa var. parachinensis), ‘Menang’ (Bra ...

- ... To compensate for the lack of available land and its increasing population, Singapore needs to develop its own effective farming systems that will not be influenced by climate change. Using aeroponic systems, our previous studies showed that cooling the root-zone could help produce all types of vegetables all year-round. Recently, we have developed an integrated vertical aeroponic farming (VAF) sy ...
