Regents approve naming precision ag project for Raven Industries


Associated Press - June 28, 2018

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) — Officials have approved naming a major new precision agriculture facility at South Dakota State University after a company that donated $5 million for the project.

The South Dakota Board of Regents voted Wednesday to grant SDSU's request to name the facility the Raven Precision Agriculture Center in recognition of the gift from Sioux Falls-based Raven Industries. It was approved as part of the board's consent agenda.

State lawmakers approved the project this year. The roughly $55 million project includes building a precision agriculture classroom and laboratory, with renovations to an existing building expected later.

The university says its bachelor's degree in precision agriculture is the first in the nation. Supporters say the new project will provide modern research and education space.
