AT IRRI: Inauguration of Lloyd T. Evans Plant Growth Facility, Jan. 21, 2016

THE Lloyd T. Evans Plant Growth Facility will be inaugurated on Thursday, January 21, 2016, at the International Rice Research Institute headquarters in Los Baños, Laguna. The facility is a state-of-the art building that will serve as a key international resource and venue for biotechnological research and conservation of genetic diversity.

A number of controlled-environment rooms, and a large set of controlled-environment plant growth chambers will dominate the facility. When in operation, the facility will enable the nurture and study of plants, particularly rice, in a wide range of environments controlling for temperature, relative humidity, light intensity, photoperiod systems, water management systems, and the precise control of atmospheric gases.(PRESS RELEASE)
