Project GREEEN turns 25


Michigan has invested more than $136.5 million into the state’s largest plant agriculture research initiative over the past 25 years.

Michigan State University Ag Bio Research Director George Smith tells Brownfield Project GREEEN (Generating Research and Extension to meet Economic and Environmental Needs) has been able to return about $15 in economic impact for every dollar of investment.

“Project GREEN is our really flagship program that came to be by our commodity group partners in agriculture coming together and saying we need help with our immediate challenges and priorities on an annual basis, short term priorities,” he says.
