The new, NSF-funded greenhouse complex at the KUFS is now complete! Investigators are beginning to apply to use the new facility. It is comprised of a fully climate-controlled greenhouse, a three-season greenhouse, and a headhouse. The facility's construction provides a means for investigators to develop experiments in a more controlled environment than in the field, while providing more realistic conditions for plants, soils, and microorganisms than in the lab.
