DECATUR, IL — A corporate greenhouse devoted to innovation and research, century farms, and new products are conversation topics as Bayer CropScience debuts the Museum of Modern Agriculture at the 2011 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill.

The museum is an opportunity to engage growers in the stories behind the agricultural innovations they enjoy today and give them a look at what is to come.

State-of-the-Art BioScience Greenhouse

The museum features a video update on the new, state-of-the-art greenhouse in Research Triangle Park, N.C. that Bayer CropScience is building to expand its BioScience corn and soybean research and development activities. The BioScience greenhouse will be designed to conduct GM and non-GM trait research, and also will support discovery research for molecular breeding and the development of data packages for trait deregulation.

The two-story facility will provide 30,000 square feet of greenhouse space and 2,400 square feet of growth chambers together with associated laboratory, seed handling, and storage areas. The total area of the building will be 60,000 square feet and will accommodate 25 staff members upon completion by the second quarter of 2012.
