A new process that allows plants to produce super bowls is getting the green light from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Department for Agriculture (USDA) is expected to sign off on the plant production process that is being used by the University of Texas at Austin to produce the state’s first super bowl.
“The USDA has approved the plant growth technology, or plant-growth process, to provide the opportunity for the University to produce its first bowl and it is being implemented by a small-scale team of students, staff, and volunteers,” UT Austin President John Sharp told the Austin American-Statesman.
“It is an important step in building an industry and supporting local farmers and food security.”
The process is not just for UT’s athletic teams and the University’s athletic department.
UT has used similar processes to grow vegetables and tomatoes.
The university is working with other universities and industry partners to create similar systems.
