ANDERSON -

Just over a year after beginning construction on a more than $9 million North American headquarters in Anderson, Italy-based agbiosciences company Italpollina says it will build a science and technology park next to its Madison County operation. The company has not detailed the investment total or the construction timeline, but says it will specialize in the "very basis" of its development process -- sciences like phenomics and metabolomics.

The park will include a phenomics greenhouse and growth chambers to create "new-generation biostimulants," a convention and training center and "Innovation in Agriculture"-themed exhibit space.

Chief Executive Officer Luca Bonini says "the park project represents further confirmation of our commitment to being a leader in sustainable and environmentally responsible agriculture. We are proud to announce the creation of ITALPOLLINA PARK, a unique industrial and scientific center that will be a world landmark for the sector, and set the highest standards in the biostimulants market."

The company says its 70,000 square-foot continental HQ will "provide the world's largest production capacity of its type." Italpollina has a presence in 80 countries.
