A joint project of the School of Plant & Environmental Sciences at Virginia Tech & the IALR, the Center is housed primarily within a modern indoor agricultural complex on the Danville campus of IALR.
The center features various hydroponic and soilless systems/ production systems and facilities, including indoor growth rooms, greenhouses, growth chambers and vertical growing racks. The center’s scientists and technology teams are working closely with the industry’s top growers and suppliers on a number of key projects.
The Institute Conference Center is also part of the IALR campus. Just steps away from the Controlled Environment Agriculture Innovation Center’s modern indoor agricultural complex, the Conference Center is a full service, state-of-the-art meeting facility.
