The documents in this collection have been assembled from material that was originally posted to the Web site of the Plant Growth Facility of the Department of Horticulture & Landscape Architecture in the College of Agriculture at Purdue University. Each document addresses a separate issue pertaining to the Purdue methods for corn plant growth used in the facility, or greenhouse. A summary of the methods, a guide to the materials, and a list of relevant references are available here as separate documents. These documents have been prepared by Robert Eddy (robeddy@purdue.edu), the Plant Growth Facilities Manager.
