Advance Controlled Environment

Advance Controlled Environment
Glasshouse by Night

APGC will have next-generation controlled-environment facilities comprising growth cabinets, growth rooms, a speed breeding facility, polytunnels and glasshouses equipped with specialist lighting and environmental controls. Most controlled growth facilities are not able to replicate field conditions in a controlled manner. This limits the capacity to identify and understand plant responses to the different environmental stresses that are encountered in a typical growing environment.

By developing specialised, bespoke growth facilities, the APGC will provide a unique opportunity to undertake this type of research within the UK.
