 In Greenhouse 5 at the Bayer Crop Science Research Triangle Park facility, soybeans containing a "stacked trait" are grown. These plants have been genetically modified to be resistant  to a certain insect and herbicide tolerant, hence the "stacked" tag.<br />
 The Bayer Crop Science Research Triangle Park main campus houses 2 large greenhouses which are used to test grow many of the seeds that are modified nearby at the Innovation Center. Another greenhouses is currently under construction.
