Urban Ag Research at University of Illinois

Urban Agriculture Research Lab

In the Urban Agriculture Research Lab at the University of Illinois our goal is to develop science-based information and tools necessary for urban farmers to develop productive and economically sustainable cropping systems. Towards this goal, we seek to quantify and characterize the distribution of air and soil pollutants in and around urban areas and understand how these pollutants influence crop physiology and productivity. This is accomplished through a combination of environmental monitoring and whole-plant physiological measures of plants growing in urban air or soil environments.
