Bayer CropScience logoBayer CropScience plans to move its vegetable seed and biological research from its current location in Davis, Calif., to West Sacramento 10 miles east by early next year.

The site, with an existing 164,000-square-foot office and laboratory on 10 acres, can house up to 300 employees, according to a news release.

The site also will include a pilot plant to formulate small batches of biologicals as well as land for a greenhouse and test plots.
