This is to inform all users of the University of Maryland Research Plant Growth Facility of rate changes, which have been fully approved by Cost Accounting and the AGNR Dean’s office, and will be effective on July 1, 2020. The rates for this facility have not been updated since it was first opened in 2003, so this is necessary to more fully incorporate the operational costs of running this facility. Moving forward, these rates will be reviewed and updated on a bi-annual basis.
