Abstract

New horticulture greenhouses at Iowa State University built through public, private partnerships provide a first-class venue for education and research. The 12,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility, dedicated in September, replaces 98-year-old greenhouses that were demolished in 2010. The greenhouses extend along the south side of Horticulture Hall, home of the Department of Horticulture. The complex is partitioned into sections dedicated to research, teaching and student club activities. Each area is equipped with computerized control system monitors that regulate environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity and light intensity providing optimal conditions for plant growth.
