You can shape the future of plant sciences

A rapidly growing population. Less farmland. Climate and water shifts. These are just some of the challenges facing agriculture today. Complex challenges – requiring complex solutions.

Farmers definitely need new varieties and technologies. So does the green industry – for ornamentals, floriculture and turfgrasses.

Innovative research by interdisciplinary teams can develop them. And our corporate partners can bring them to market.

Partnership in the NC Plant Sciences Initiative is an investment that will impact generations to come:

  • Students who will be leaders in agricultural science
  • Researchers who will solve global agricultural challenges
  • Farmers, the green industry and commercial businesses
    that will all grow and prosper from our results

Need another reason? In 35 short years we will have nine billion people to feed.

Together we define the future of plant sciences.
