West Lafayette, IN 47907

Dr. Nemali has responsibility for extension and research activities related to controlled environment agriculture which includes ornamentals and vegetables grown under protected culture.  He also teaches courses related to controlled environment agriculture production and technology.  A primary goal of his program at Purdue is to develop new and affordable technologies that improve sustainability (i.e., reduce input waste, minimize environmental impact, and increase profits) in controlled environment agriculture and make them easily available to growers.  He aims to train students with sustainable production practices that are complemented with state of the art technologies for controlled environments.  He is passionate about actively engaging and contributing to the existing diversity programs at Purdue.

He is currently looking for graduate students interested in controlled environment agriculture program.  If interested, send your resume to him.
