The Greensboro Center was also home to the remote sensing lab.  The Memorandum of Understanding says A&T has a working farm with modern facilities and farm equipment. NRCS will benefit from the use of this farm by  being able to provide hands-on training to NRCS employees. NRCS can sponsor field studies that can serve as demonstrations to both NRCS trainees and also local and regional farmers. A&T constituents will also benefit from this type of applied investigation. Finally, A&T faculty and students can also benefit academically by conducting scholarly research and publishing this information.

Re: U.S. Department of Agriculture, natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Lease Project, Greensboro , NC
This correspondence correspondence to your June 30, 2006 inquiry concerning the status of this project as a firm action that will move forward. As I have advised on   numerous occasions and want to reiterate, this particular project is an endeavor which was approved by the U.S. General Services Administration as a sole-source" procurement based upon the unique requirements provided by the NRCS...As such, we have been working and are committed to diligently pursing satisfaction of NRCS need for space to be located on the campus of North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University through a negotiated lease procurement
 
August 14, 2006 Terrance Feravich email to Joe Henderson, John Webb,  CC Robert Nelson; John Merrill: I was hoping that we might have an opportunity to sit and walk through any hurdles that you see in proposed lease between NCA&T/UNCG joint Millennial Campus and GCID.   Talking with John of Friday.  I've learned that he has gained a significant commitment from the USDA for up to a 50,000 sq. ft. new building.  While they understand that we are working hard at getting things properly set-up for all parties and are being patient, my sense is that it would be in the best interest of this new venture to get that first client off to a healthy and timely start.  I'll be in Raleigh Wednesday for a couple of meetings ... and would welcome the opportunity to work the issues that you are see in the lease.  I know that John Merrill is also pretty flexible this week is well.  Sorry to be a bit of a pest with this important issue and I appreciate your understanding.  

 Joseph Henderson email wrote: Terry We can deal with the new building under our existing procedures. Let's not let the proposed lease get in the way of that.
