From a seedling to a flower, a space has fully bloomed on the Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory located west of Kenny Road. The Controlled Environment Agriculture Research Complex (CEARC) is now open.
The $34.8 million project provides a platform for interdisciplinary research at the nexus of horticulture and crop science, engineering, entomology, plant pathology, food science, computer science, and human nutrition/health. The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) imagined the project more than five years ago, and Facilities Operations and Development began construction in September 2020.
