Following increased customer demand, the recently completed 1000m” of heated/lit greenhouse space is now providing extra, climate-controlled capacity for Non-Target Plant Testing of pesticides, including monitoring of seedling emergence and growth/vegetative vigour. The new facilities are also being used for early stage herbicide screening and resistance monitoring; this will be extended in the near future to fungicide screening and resistance monitoring.
