Agriculture Science and Industries Building (ASI)

Many departmental facilities are located on the fifth floor of the Agricultural Sciences and Industries (ASI) Building. Facilities include 14 research laboratories, 35 offices and classrooms, and 800 square feet of growth chamber space. Laboratories and offices also are located in the Chemical Ecology Laboratory and the Entomology Ornamentals and Turf Laboratory.

The museum houses the insect and related arthropod collections of The Pennsylvania State University and serves a valuable educational function by making insect biodiversity accessible to the general public through displays for the casual visitor and educational visits for school groups and other interested organizations.

The Entomology Farm is located at the Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center in the Rock Springs area, approximately 10 miles west of campus. The Entomology Farm consists of 88 acres of test plots used for a wide range of faculty and student research projects.

The Chemical Ecology Lab, home of the Huck Institutes for Life Sciences Chemical Ecology Program, is located on Orchard Road, northeast of main campus. The Chemical Ecology Lab currently houses office and laboratory facilities for faculty members, several postdocs, graduate students, and staff. Recently, the building was remodeled and a state-of-the-art greenhouse was added to the east side of the building. Additional greenhouse facilities and the Gypsy Moth Research Center are also located in this area.
