  • Procedure for growing non-GM plants at The Plant Accelerator Form


Plant Accelerator GreenhouseThe Plant Accelerator contains 34 greenhouses in PC2 and non-PC2 areas ranging in size from 24 to 48 and 72 sqm. Some greenhouses are quarantine approved to allow plant growth from imported seeds.

The greenhouses are fitted with evaporative and/or refrigerated cooling. Variance in temperature in the greenhouse can be pre-programmed to reflect external conditions (e.g. cool nights, moderate mornings, hot afternoons).

The greenhouses' double glazed acrylic skin provides good insulation properties and transmits the entire spectrum of UV light, ensuring that internal environmental conditions are as close as possible to those in the field.
