Officials with a leading plant sciences company have expanded their presence in Research Triangle Park. BASF cut the ribbon today on new lab, office and greenhouse space. The expansion cost $33 million.
The new addition includes an insect production facility, or an "insect zoo," to aid in testing bug-killing agents. Nigel Armes is BASF's director of research and development. He says the facility is key in establishing the company as a leader in insecticide production.
