GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -The University of Florida Department Of Agronomy is getting a facelift after over a year of renovations and construction.

Larger laboratories, new conference rooms, and a new seed cooler are just a few of the many updates finished since March 2020.

“We now have more space to bring in additional grad students, additional post-docs, or visiting scientists we didn’t have the space for. So it’ll greatly allow to expand our research programs and productivity,” Kenworthy stated.

An open house will be held July 30 at 3:30 PM at 2005 SW 23rd Street, building 350, to showcase the renovations.
