FRESNO (KMJ) – Fresno State celebrates the opening of the new Jordan AG Research Center.
“I think it’s a bold move, it’s been in the works for a long time, it’s going to move the college and the university for that matter well ahead of others in terms of being on the cutting edge of agricultural research.” – Sandra Witte, Dean, Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences & Technology.
The 30,000-square-foot center is a one of a kind space with 3 floors of dry and wet research laboratories, workspaces and meeting rooms.
