Abstract/Contents:"The greenhouse experiment was designed to collect background information on potential new candidate crops that can be grown on the International Space Station. The grass family (Poaceae) includes species from a wide diversity of habitats and shows a considerable measure of ecological adaptation. While many of the grasses can be grown under extreme conditions such as drought, heat, and low quality irrigation water, they also possess characteristics that make them particularly well suited for space plant breeding program, such as compact size, tolerant to stress, rapid growth, and reliable germination. In addition to grasses, two crops with high levels of beneficial phytonutrients or antioxidants values were included in the study to identify other potential candidates for the space breeding program. A greenhouse study was conducted at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces during 2021 to screen two grasses, wheatgrass (Triticum aestivum L.) and oat grass (Avena sativa L.). and two broad leaf crops, spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) and chile pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) to identify plants that tolerate irrigation with treated effluent water under deficit evapotranspiration (ET) replacement while maintaining high level of nutrients. Containers measuring 12 cm in diameter and 12 cm in depth were filled with arcillite as a soilless substrate and established from seed."
