On-campus MSU Research
Much of the research conducted by AgBioResearch scientists takes place on MSU's East Lansing campus. In addition, there are 18 research facilities located on the south MSU campus that allow scientists to perform research in the areas of animal science and production, plant production and protection, environmental and natural resources management, and renewable energy. State-of-the-art facilities and 2,738 acres of farmland and forest allow research to be performed close to campus and the opportunity to view a number of demonstration plots in one visit. Research focuses on a prosperous and healthy future for Michigan: more nutritious food, crops produced with fewer or no pesticides, clean water, wetland preservation, land use and techniques to detect food-borne illness.
