Exciting things are taking shape at CARC! A nearly 3000 square foot greenhouse was approved initially under the MUS’s 2019 long range building package, but construction was delayed due to increased building costs. The building was reapproved in the 2021 package and construction began just before winter. Activity has picked back up with the arrival of spring, and we are eagerly awaiting the completion of CARC’s newest building! The new greenhouse will provide much-needed research space that can be carefully controlled, facilitating projects such as studying the response of camelina to beneficial soil microorganisms and drought tolerance studies involving transcriptomics.
Thank you to the Montana state legislators and MAES clientele for supporting this project!
