The new plant growth chambers have arrived!

Exciting times! In late 2015 we secured funding to replace a number of aging controlled-environment growth chambers with state-of-the-art Conviron chambers, replete with light, temperature, humidity and [CO2] control. The new chambers arrived today. Over the next few weeks these will be installed and this very important area of the Plant Growth Facility will be refurbished. This follows on from other major works carried out over the last year, including replacing glasshouse lighting systems with high-efficiency (and very bright) LED lights, and replacing aging glasshouse side-walls and roofs. Now, to do some research!
