Resources for Crop Improvement

Our facilities include:

  • Containment glasshouses
  • Over 6 hectares available annually for field vegetable and associated trials work
  • Tissue culture facilities (sterile flow hoods and growth rooms)
  • Genetic Resources Unit
  • Hydroponic facilities (nutrient film technique)
  • Vernalisation chamber
  • Root and seed cleaning facilities
  • Soil grinding and plant milling facilities
  • Drying oven
  • Rhizotrons (for examining roots in situ)
  • Thermogradient tunnels providing large areas with 4oC differential from one end to the other, ideal for investigating crop response to increased temperature associatd with climate change
