More than $877,000 awarded to Penn State for investments in agricultural industry

(Jan 26, 2024)

“This funding for Penn State will invest in the agricultural industry, allowing one of Pennsylvania’s largest industries to grow,” Conklin said. “By investing in research at Penn State, we support pioneering research from Penn State’s students, faculty and staff, as well as take the opportunity to make the agricultural industry more environmentally sustainable. We need to be vigilant in seeking ways to make this thriving and powerful industry more sustainable for the future. The new grants will fund projects to help us remediate abandoned coal mine land, identify lands that could be suitable for solar energy production, and develop other projects to move us toward greater sustainability. Through these grants, we will make an impact on the industry, helping farmers across the commonwealth.” Read more
