Greenhouse Equipment Use

A variety of types of equipment, including autoclaves and soil mixers, are used in Cornell greenhouses.  Training in safe operation and proper maintenance of this equipment ensures its continued availability for use and protects the safety of those using it.


Preventive maintenance minimizes factors that cause deterioration.  Timely repair of small problems prevents them from becoming larger issues, and minimizes algae growth and other pest problems.
