May 7, 2015


INDIANAPOLIS – (May 7, 2015) – Today, AgriNovus Indiana released the findings of a white paper series, “Agbiosciences Innovation Sector Review,” Through a partnership with Battelle Memorial Institute, AgriNovus developed this series of papers to further research the industry trends and developments in four key Indiana innovation sectors — Plant Science and Crop Protection, Animal Health and Nutrition, Value-Added Food and Nutrition, and Agricultural Equipment Technologies and Systems.

“To gain a broader perspective and understanding of the critical trends in each of the four agbiosciences sectors, we engaged Battelle to perform additional research that would identify the specific drivers of research and economic activity in those areas and reveal areas of opportunities for Indiana,” said Beth Bechdol, President and CEO of AgriNovus Indiana, an organization comprised of individuals, businesses, universities and government leaders across the state’s diverse food and agricultural sector.


Each white paper in the “Agbiosciences Innovation Sector Review” provides additional information on industry trends including: market statistics, emerging technologies, leading companies, areas of research and regulatory issues. The four white papers are available on the AgriNovus website.

AgriNovus will continue to convene key stakeholders in these four innovation sectors from across Indiana and the Midwest region and will play an important role in facilitating the industry-university and public-private partnerships that can help further advance the agbiosciences in the state.

“This new data helps us dive deeper into these four areas and is a great roadmap to pursue initiatives which help foster innovation, grow businesses and attract talent in Indiana,” said Bechdol. “AgriNovus provides Indiana with a robust agbiosciences platform as a global leader in food and agricultural innovation.”
