The Warwick Crop Centre has ideal facilities for studying plant diseases.

Our facilities include:

  • Official Recognition to undertake efficacy trials (ORETO 299)
  • Clubroot infected site
  • Allium White Rot infected site
  • Fusarium oxysporum infected site
  • 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
