A Paper On Crop Growing Systems For Space


  • Dr. Girja Shanker Tiwari, Dr. Divya Prakash Singh


After the experiments of the early 20th century, newly emerged systems of space agriculture have been discussed. The usage of photosynthetic species and light for the creation of food and oxygen are fundamental to the definition. Analysis in the field started in the 1960s with researchers' work researching algae for the processing of O2 and CO2 elimination for the “National Aeronautics and Space Administration” (NASA) and the U.S. Air Force. Algal growth experiments and a the experiments on regulated agricultural environment were performed by Russian researchers in the 1960s, along with the experiments with human crews whose water, air and most of their food were made from various crops like wheat. “Regulated Ecological Life Support Systems” (CELSS) introduced by NASA’s Research system worked on growing maize, broccoli, soybean, sweet potato and potato in a regulated climate. Performance of those research were also used to carry out atmospheric experiments on a restricted chamber at Space Center. Around the same moment, researchers have established a Controlled “Environmental Experiment center” (CEEF) in the prefecture of Aomori to carry out closed-system experiments of plants, humans, Livestock and feed recovery schemes. Such experiments for spatial agriculture have culminated in novel technologies and it created findings; this involves one of early instances for airborne plantation, the use of hydroponic techniques for farm crops such as potatoes as well as sweet potato, cropping yields that are formally superior to those of the farm., capable of quantifying organic variable compounds (e.g. ethylene) from entire crop stands, ground-breaking solutions to flood management delivery, manufacturing methods, and waste collection back to production of crop , and more.
