Controlled environment agriculture (CEA) is any form of agriculture that attempts to modify the environment around growing plants, cold frames, frost covers, or completely automated, fully controlled greenhouse spaces.
The earliest known iteration of CEA production was by Roman Emperor, Tiberius Caesar. In an attempt to eat more cucumbers as advised by his doctor, plants were placed on a moveable bed and would stay outside during appropriate weather. These beds were covered with a frame glazed with a transparent stone known as mica. And when weather conditions were unfavorable the beds were moved indoors.
Although, indoor agriculture has come a long way since then and is utilized for many different crops and plants.
