Well-equipped laboratories for work in molecular and cell biology of crop plants are located in Bradfield and Emerson Halls.
Greenhouse (~25,000 ft2) and growth chamber operations are in the Guterman complex, as are some research labs related to the applied breeding programs. Additional greenhouse space in the Boyce Thompson Institute, Plant Science Greenhouses, and other areas is also used.
The Love Field House supports the applied breeding programs. The Department is well equipped for field operations, including land preparation and harvesting of crops. The Field House also has an excellent shop for fabrication and repair. Facilities and equipment are available for processing, drying, cleaning, and storing seeds and plant materials and for tests of quality.
Experimental farms for field research are located on approximately 300 acres of land at various sites in Tompkins County. Additional trials are conducted at other locations throughout the state.
Cornell materials are also tested in other states and countries through collaborative research arrangements
