To whom it may concern:
RE: NSF grant application entitled “Next Generation Agriculture: Mobile, Energy Efficient, High
Yield, and Cultivar Specific”
Bowling Green State University is delighted to be participating in this proposal as a subawardee through the research efforts of Professors Malcolm Forbes and Pavel Anzenbacher,
who will provide a strong R&D foundation for Net Zero Agriculture’s startup venture.
We can provide laboratory space in Overman Hall (in either Professor’s space) for initial
experiments, and if the proposal is successful we can consider further incubation space and/or
an outdoor experimental station for further expansion as this company gets off the ground.
We look forward to watching an exciting set of ideas develop to improve and expand the
capabilities of modern agricultural methods.
