Celebrating 25 years of Project GREEEN
Project GREEEN (Generating Research and Extension to meet Economic and Environmental Needs) produces industry-driven research and outreach that works to enhance plant agriculture through:
- Developing research and educational programs in response to industry needs.
- Ensuring and improving food safety.
- Protecting and preserving the quality of the environment.
Project GREEEN, Michigan’s plant agriculture initiative housed at Michigan State University, is a cooperative effort by plant-based commodity groups and businesses in cooperation with Michigan State University AgBioResearch, Michigan State University Extension and the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to advance Michigan’s economy through plant-based agriculture.
