Hardy-Caviness Greenhouse Complex

The Hardy-Caviness Greenhouse Complex at Northeast Research and Extension Center will be dedicated during the lunch program at the NEREC Field Day Tuesday, July 21. It includes a new greenhouse and another that was renovated, along with a head house for both units.

The new NEREC facilities are named in honor of former Dean Glenn Hardy, and the late Professor Charles E. "Chuck" Caviness. They were made possible by gifts from Lee Wilson and Company in Mississippi County, the E. Ritter and Company based in Marked Tree and Charles Moore of Mississippi County, Fred Bourland of Keiser, David Wildy Farms of Mississippi County and Adams Land Company at Leachville.

Dr. Hardy was dean from 1965 to 1987 of what is now Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. He joined the U of A's agronomy department in 1965 and retired as Professor of Agricultural and Extension Education in 1991. Early in his career, he was director of the Division of Agriculture Soil Testing and Research Laboratory.

Dr. Caviness was a member of the University of Arkansas agronomy faculty from 1949 to 1991. As the Arkansas soybean breeder he led a team effort to develop seven important soybean varieties and collaborated on releases from other states. His description of soybean growth stages was widely used by researchers and was referenced in numerous research journal articles.

The greenhouses will provide for an energy-efficient, controlled environment for the crops research conducted at NEREC.
