  • Allium White Rot infected site
  • Fusarium oxysporum infected sites (onion, lettuce)
  • Sclerotinia infected site
  • Cavity spot infected site
  • Containment facilities for work on plant viruses
  • Assistance with experimental design and data analysis
  • Molecular biology laboratories
  • Range of glasshouses, polytunnels and tygan houses
