Monsanto Working on Public Trust as Greenhouse Construction Ramps Up

Some farm owners near the development continue to oppose the company's presence.

Last year community opposition erupted when the agro-giant Monsanto said it would open a facility near Marana and requested a tax break and foreign trade zone status. The company eventually moved forward with construction and dropped its request. Vanessa Barchfield got an update on the project, near West Twin Peaks and North Sanders roads. She spoke to Monsanto company representatives about plans for its new greenhouse and met with a local farm owner who still opposes the development.
