Plant Sciences Complex
- Located at one of the entrances to campus on approximately 5.5 acres, the Plant Sciences Complex will be comprised of a learning center, next to Cal Poly’s plant production fields, to support specialty crop and managed environment production.
- It will include support for teaching and applied innovation in soil health, water and air quality, plant harvesting and processing, and food safety, as well as a site for automation and systems testing.
- Programming, underway, will include several of the college’s departments: Horticulture and Crop Sciences, Bioresource and Agricultural Engineering, Natural Resources Management and Environmental Sciences and the Wine and Viticulture departments as well as the Cal Poly Strawberry Center.
- Fundraising for the project is now underway.
