Bayer CropScience and North Carolina State University (NCSU) announced the Bayer CropScience Graduate Fellowship in Plant Pathology. This new graduate training program is just one additional way we are collaborating with NCSU to invest in agricultural technologies to feed a growing planet.

Through this fellowship, the graduate fellow will work closely with an adjunct faculty member from Bayer (Mike Schwarz, Ph.D., senior product and crop development manager, Bayer CropScience) over the course of graduate studies and research, and will complete an internship with Bayer CropScience.

Both Bayer and NCSU understand the agriculture industry has to find qualified candidates for its workforce and will continue to work together to develop curriculum to train ag students to be successful in the field.

At the official signing ceremony, Mark Parrish, Ph.D., head of development North America Field Operations for Bayer CropScience, shared with attendees how impressed Bayer has been with its recent hires from NCSU.

"The ag industry has a tall order to fill over the next several decades-we need to develop technologies and solutions to feed a growing population- and we can only do this by ensuring we have a pipeline of talent, said Parrish. "We look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with NCSU to educate and train our future workforce so we don't lack fresh ideas, fresh perspectives.
