MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE (PRWEB) April 19, 2013

Bayer CropScience recently celebrated the groundbreaking of its newest research and development facility: a 40,000-square-foot greenhouse, which will help increase the number of traits available for cotton varieties in both the U.S. and international markets. The company plans to invest USD 17 million for the new greenhouse, located at Agricenter International in Memphis, Tenn., as part of the greater Bayer CropScience commitment to invest EUR 7 billion in research and development as well as an expansion of production capacities and seed processing facilities globally between 2011 and 2016. Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell and Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton Jr. joined other local Tennessee dignitaries and Bayer CropScience executives to share in the festivities.

The event, which was held on April 1, 2013, began with a groundbreaking ceremony at the Bayer CropScience Memphis site. More than 40 local dignitaries visited the Bayer CropScience site and heard comments from Lloyd McCall, Director Global Molecular Breeding; Geoff Kneen, Head of Strategic Initiatives and Research Triangle Park Operations; and Al Balducchi, Global Cotton Trait Introgression Manager. The festivities concluded with a reception hosted by Agricenter International that showcased Tennessee agriculture and the valuable contributions companies such as Bayer CropScience make to sustain it.

“Bayer CropScience is the leading cotton seed company globally, and we are committed to bringing innovation to the cotton industry. Once completed, the Memphis Greenhouse will allow us to increase the number of traits for cotton varieties for both U.S. and global markets,” said Mike Gilbert, Head of Global Breeding and Trait Development f
