More often than not, universities are given plant donations to use the plants for research. Over 419 universities have benefited from these generous donations and have discovered a vast majority of beneficial things.
TN Nursery plans on donating plants for research as they have set aside plants that have never had herbicides, insecticides or pesticides. They take pride in what they can donate for research use.
Some of the prestigious universities that have benefited from these donations are Rhodes University, Harvard University, Michigan State University. These are only a few of the 419 universities who have benefited from the plant donations.
Harvard has published some of the most interesting work as they have worked with NASA to understand suborbital biology and the understanding of the need for plants in zero-gravity environments. This has not only benefited NASA's continual research, but also the astronauts they send off into space.
Michigan State University has also done their own research about how plants fight off diseases. Because we know plants immune systems are quite different than a human's they have been able to understand the differences and how to help strengthen plants--especially against bacteria. This is done to help save billions of dollars of crops every year. In all this research they have been able to create new plants that are better able to fight off bacteria and diseases.
There have been a vast number of other research conducted by universities that has been able to benefit not only the universities in their research, but the research has produced results that help a wide range of people in many different professions.
TN Nursery will continue to provide these generous donations to non-profit organizations, universities and government programs with no cost of plant or shipping. These donations help us move forward to find answers and build a better future.
