VENUS — Archbold Biological Station has received a $499,921 grant as part of a U.S. Department of Agriculture project to improve food production.

The grant to Archbold Expeditions in Venus is the largest of 18 in a $6.7 million program through the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Agricultural and Food Research Initiative. Research should show how soil, water, sun, plants, animals and people interact to affect food production. USDA officials believe that understanding “agroecosystems,” as they are called, may help sustain long-term agricultural production.
