The 25,000-square-foot Macfarlane Research Greenhouses are dedicated to research and teaching associated with the NH Agricultural Experiment Station and College of Life Sciences and Agriculture.

The facility provides highly controlled environments for a diversity of research projects, including:

  • Ornamental and food crop breeding
  • Sustainable ornamental plant nutrition and development
  • Aquaculture
  • Biological pest control
  • Bioremediation
  • Plant genetic diversity

The greenhouse environments are monitored and precisely regulated through a computer-based control system that creates a sustainable growing environment through the conservation of heat, electricity, water and fertilizer, and increased plant resistance to insect pests and diseases.
