Scientists at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Canada are leading the way when it comes to solving problems such as how to feed a growing population and alleviating the effects of climate change.
BCIT is focusing on experimentation with the C4 plant Setaria which tolerates hot and dry conditions better than C3 plants. Instead of growing Setaria in their greenhouse, where conditions were variable, they are using a Conviron GEN1000 plant growth chamber that allows more control over growth conditions and yields more consistent and repeatable data.
