STILWELL, Kan. (AP) -- A worldwide agricultural research company has chosen northeastern Kansas for the headquarters of one of its divisions.

California-based Syntech Research already has a laboratory in the Johnson County community of Stilwell.

The Kansas Commerce Department and the Kansas Bioscience Authority said Thursday the company will also locate its contract research organization headquarters in Stilwell.

Nearly 90 jobs are expected to be added over the next five years at the headquarters.

SynTech does research for the agricultural, biotechnology and food industries. It has operations and field locations throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
