Seed increase under insect-proof glasshouse or in the open field

Five glasshouses, covering an area of 2500 mē, including a special one (650 mē) dedicated for production of inbred lines and RIL. The glasshouse dedicated to BRC for Medicago truncatula is insect-proof and received a new cooling system in 2006.
All glasshouses have cooling, one is heated. Most of them have additional light.
One of the many advantages of our location under Mediterranean climate is the possibility to characterize or to produce seeds in the field, in conditions that approach their natural environment. Production in the open field is mainly reserved for the populations. Anyway, populations can also be produced under greenhouse, either in large containers either in soil.
