As part of its commitment to support growers throughout the Great Plains and worldwide, Bayer CropScience celebrates the grand opening of its Beaver Crossing Breeding and Trait Development Station near Lincoln, Nebraska.
Research and development activities at the $17 million state-of-the-art facility will serve to help Bayer CropScience deliver breakthrough wheat and soybean varieties with improved technologies and genetics. Bayer CropScience executives and employees, as well as Gov. Pete Ricketts and state senator Mark Kolterman participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the facility.
“Wheat and soybean crops play an integral role in strengthening Nebraska’s agriculture industry and its economy,” says Frank Terhorst, global head of Seeds for Bayer CropScience LP. “Through Beaver Crossing, we are expressing our commitment to using the latest scientific research and development to support the continued health of these valuable crops. Seed innovations cultivated here will provide growers with the innovative tools necessary to meet a growing worldwide demand for food, and will provide industry leadership in sustainable crops.“
