A new speed breeding facility has been opened on Park Farm
Situated in Park farm, adjacent to the Crop Science Centre, this glasshouse has the capability to help further ENSA’s goals.
The facility has high specification LED grow lighting systems, a high-pressure fogging system for humidity, mechanical cooling and forced air ventilation.
It is designed to enhance the speed of crop growth, and therefore speed-up crop science experiments.
Half will be set for sub-tropical conditions and used to grow rice and maize, whereas the other half will be used to grow barley.
