U of I Hosts Biosciences Open House
They say America is the bread basket of the world. But these days, agriculture is complicated. So the University of Illinois hosted an open house today to teach people about biosciences.
Visitors toured a large-scale bio-energy field while learning about the latest practices for crop management and harvesting and storing biofuel feedstock.
The Urbana energy farm is used as a learning tool for students in the ag department.
