What research has "Living with the Land" at Disney's EPCOT actually produced?

While visiting Disney's EPCOT a couple of years ago, I took a backstage tour of Living with the Land. This is the large greenhouse and ride where Disney grows hydroponic vegetables and produces aquaculture fish. Much was made at the time about the "valuable research" Disney has produced, and various sites online
mention this research as well. However, I have no idea what that research actually is.
So what research has Disney produced from Living with the Land? Has it been published? Peer reviewed? Are actual farmers using this information? How?
Or is this all fabricated by Disney as part of the show?
