Syngenta, one of the world's largest agriculture productivity companies, broke ground on its expansion project in Clinton today.
The 70-acre site represents a big shot in the economic arm for Clinton. If estimates come to fruition, the expansion is a $12 million boost to the local economy.
The site will support 144,000 soybean and 235,000 corn trials per year. The location includes 90 acres of nursery for corn and 60 acres of nursery for soybeans. Construction is expected to be complete by mid summer.
