Raleigh Bayer/NCSU

Reflecting back on the week that was spent in Raleigh, one can see a great deal of technology and scientific advancement that has taken place in the agricultural field.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time at NCSU and Bayer Crop Science.

During our time at NCSU, we were shown the poultry lab and were able to do a small experiment in the genetic field.  We also visited with the Ag Institute, which allows students more options in the Ag education field.  We also spent time with the ethics group that discusses the ethics that goes into the genetic science field.  One interesting area were also able to see was the aquaculture department.  Advancement in this area is helping to keep up with the demand of seafood.

Bayer Crop Science gave us opportunities to see what they are doing in the field of plant genetics.  They are trying to help feed the ever growing population, by creating a better and more durable plant.  We were able to see all the different levels of work that is going on in crop science.  They also gave us a tour of there bee institute.
