Purdue University was founded in 1868 as one of the original land-grant universities in the United States. Purdue is the flagship university of Indiana's university system. It is noted for its exceptional College of Engineering and programs in aerospace and aviation. Also noteworthy is the Krannert School of Management. Purdue ranks in the Top 100 of American Universities, according to U.S. News and World Report. Purdue offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in 200 subject areas. Purdue publishes high quality peer-review journals and offers on-line public access to its research news. Purdue enjoys its nickname, Cradle of Astronauts as 22 astronauts are alumni, including Neil Armstrong, Gus Grissom and Eugene Cernan.
Nearly every foraging honey bee in the state of Indiana will encounter neonicotinoids during corn planting season, and the common seed treatments produced no improvement in crop yield, according to a Purdue University study.
