The greenhouse facility is indispensable for all those who work on plants or plant animal interactions. They also help to maintain pure or modified plant/animal lines.
Greenhouses at the campus are located on the Eastern Laboratory terraces with a total built area of 615 sqm. There are six set of greenhouses: Plant house (for an area 150 sqm). Butterfly house (75 sqm). Ecology house [130sqml. Moth house (180 sqm) and two Transgenic greenhouses (80 sqm). These greenhouses are equipped with fully automated climatic control system to control light, temperature and humidity using special lights, shading screens (UV stabilized cool net), evaporative pad (cellulose) and fan cooling system, heaters (Biotech heat converter of 2.4KW to circulate heat), humidifiers (overhead misting system with foggers) and dehumidifiers. The greenhouses can be set to a range of 0.1 to 59.90 C with ±10 accuracy. Photo-synthetically active radiation lamps having wavelengths of 400 to 700 mm have been installed to provide perfect light conditions. Monitoring and precise regulation of conditions through a microprocessor based control system that creates a sustainable growing environment through the conservation of heat, electricity and water is in place.
