INDIANAPOLIS — Dow AgroSciences announces plans for a multi-year expansion of its global headquarters in Indianapolis, with investment of more than $340 million and the addition of more than 550 scientific and commercial jobs over the next five years.

The first phase in the multi-year expansion plan includes the construction of a 175,000 square foot research and development building, as well as a 14,000-square-foot greenhouse on the company’s corporate campus. These facilities are part of a global growth plan for Dow AgroSciences’ research efforts as it develops and commercializes new product solutions for customers in agricultural and related market segments. More than 550 new jobs will be added over the next five years at the headquarters location in both scientific and commercial roles.
