Plant Growth Chamber Center

Overview of Services

Welcome to the Purdue University College of Agriculture Plant Growth Chamber Center. Located across three buildings on Ag campus, these 50+ plant growth chambers, 38 light racks with manual irrigation, and 36 light trays with automated irrigation are available to Purdue scientists. A daily recharge is assessed for repair and maintainance of the equipment, and for services such as pest control and scouting by a licensed applicator. We hope you find this page useful in orienting your new staff and keeping your research program growing.
