The Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) has been selected by the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a partner in facilitating the adoption of ARS research outcomes by small businesses and universities in Georgia and the Southeast. ARS is the in-house scientific research agency of the USDA, employing approximately 2,100 scientists in the United States and abroad.

"Our new relationship with ARS will further our technology-based economic development mission by helping Georgia agribusinesses and research universities tap the vast array of innovative agricultural technologies developed in ARS laboratories nationwide," said Mike Cassidy, president and CEO of the GRA. "This, in turn, will create new research, product development, commercialization and entrepreneurial opportunities."
