Students helped harvest the inaugural corn research crop at Huntington University this month.
“It’s a big first for Huntington University and our agricultural program,” said Nate Perry, coordinator of operations and external relations. “Miss Mabel Thorne gave us the property in the late ‘60s. We’ve used the property for some outdoor education, recreation and environmental science. This year, we decided it was time to put seed in the ground and see how it does.”
