What will I see during a visit to the Learning Center?

At the Gothenburg Water Utilization Learning Center you will see our three-pronged systems-based approach in helping farmers manage drought; native genes selected through traditional plant breeding, the additive impact of biotech traits and finally the additive impact of agronomic components of the system.
