Biosystems Engineering Grad Helps Bayer Find New Corn Pollination Time Frames
Caroline Schulte, BE graduate, is conducting research at Bayer’s Marana Greenhouse to determine ideal times for corn pollination in a controlled environment. Increasing the frequency of pollination per day and quality of the pollen may be possible at the Marana Greenhouse. Schulte is utilizing the experience gained while at the University of Arizona, to help improve sustainable corn production which will help feed the growing global population.
