The Future of Agriculture
The 21st Century Agricultural Bioscience Research Facility
Thursday, April 26, 2018
Presenting at Tradeline's annual Research Facilities Conference, Chuck Mummert and Steve Briggs will describe the current field application-oriented convergence of plant health and production, food security, bio-based fuels, clean energy, pharmaceutics, and environmental conservation. Together, they'll illustrate how these conditions are driving programming and design criteria for state-of-the-art corporate and institutional Ag Bioscience facilities. They will profile leading corporate, institutional, and academic organizations that have recently constructed research facilities; detail optimal planning metrics, space layouts, and space assignments; and demonstrate what facility flexibility, adaptability, and scalability mean in this context.
