Complex challenges demand complex solutions. A rapidly growing population. Less farmland. Climate and water shifts. Emerging crop diseases and pests.
These are just some of the challenges facing agriculture today.
The NC Plant Sciences Initiative (PSI) strives to address these grand challenges.
We are bringing the brightest minds in academia, government and industry together to drive innovation that increases yields, creates new varieties, extends growing seasons, enhances agricultural and environmental sustainability and produces new and improved technology. Interdisciplinary teams that can shift nimbly.
Establishing the PSI Building on NC State’s Centennial Campus will be the tipping point in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences’ (CALS) ability to impact North Carolina and the world of agriculture.
Think of all the good we can do.
