The Crop Science Field Facility is located on 48 ha (120 acres) of irrigated land dedicated to the production, processing and evaluation of field crops. Located on site is a field facility that houses the technical staff of the various research programs. In addition, the facility is home to seed treatment and seed handling areas. An expansion to the building in 2005 resulted in the addition of a 1330 square metre pulse research facility. A second expansion to the building in 2009 now houses the 1,466 square metre Grains Innovation Laboratory (GIL), a facility that houses quality research in field crops.
