Upgraded outdoor facilities to support germplasm characterization, evaluation, and regeneration.

May. 30, 2011

A mixed-use gravel area immediately north of the OPGC greenhouses has been developed to provide different growing environments for some of our germplasm. This area includes raised beds, a high tunnel, a container area as well as a storage facility. The raised beds provide alternative soil types to grow plants that require more extensive drainage or lower pH than available in Columbus.
