Caption: Irradiation. Control panel of a radioactive source used to sterilise grain using gamma rays. This technique promotes mutation of the genome, rapidly producing new strains that may be more productive or disease resistant. The red light indicates that the radioactive source is uncovered. Photographed in 1970.
