CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - A subsidiary of Dow Chemical Co. is opening a facility in the research park at the University of Illinois’ Champaign-Urbana campus.

Indianapolis, Indiana-based Dow AgroSciences and the university announced the opening on Monday. The Dow AgroSciences Innovation Center joins the Dow Chemical Company Innovation Center, which opened in the school’s research park in 2013. Dow Chemical is based in Midland, Michigan.

The company and school said in a news release that Dow projects at the new facility will focus on the intersection of technology and agriculture. Students, many graduate students, will work at the center.

The university’s research park also is home to companies like ADM, John Deere, Caterpillar and State Farm.
