The Horticultural and Controlled Environment Department at Rothamsted Research is responsible for providing plants, for research, grown in glasshouses and controlled environments. A team of staff are responsible for growing a wide range of plant material, mainly crop species such as oilseed rape, potatoes, wheat and barley.
Over 500,000 plants are raised per annum for a variety of research purposes, including insect food, nutrition studies, plant physiological processes and genetic transformation studies. In addition, a wide variety of plants grown in the grounds are used for sourcing and rearing insects as well as experimental plant material.
