Your support of the Phytotron enables us to continue to provide the environment needed for high quality research conducted by NCSU faculty & students to have an impact on both local and global communities through their agricultural research. You can help us continue to provide the environment for conducting research.



You can become a friend of the Phytotron by donating to the Phytotron Enhancement Fund to provide funds for improving the Phytotron or you can donate to the Giles Phytotron Endowment. This endowment was established by Lawrence Jon Giles in memory of Dr. Jack Downs, the first director of the NCSU Phytotron. It acknowledges his leadership and contribution to controlled environment research.
