Dow moves US maize and soy research sites

Dow AgroSciences has expanded and relocated its Central Iowa Field Research sites from Gilbert and Huxley (Iowa) to Ames (Iowa) to accommodate the growing maize and soybean breeding programmes. The company purchased 155 acres (63 ha) of land north-west of Ames for the new site and has completed construction. It has over 20 full-time employees and contains over 17,500 sq ft (1,626 m 2) of office/seed laboratory building and some 15,300 sq ft for the equipment storage building. It houses maize and soybean breeding programmes along with a finishing trait maize conversion nursery, which supports Dow’s genetically modified products including SmartStax and Enlist. The expansion will allow the maize and soybean breeding programmes to expand, enabling their testing and breeding capacity to double over the next three years, Dow says.
