KANNAPOLIS - Most people have never heard of Monsanto.

But the company’s arrival at the N.C. Research Campus has alarmed some environmentalists and organic food proponents.

The highest-profile tenant at the biotechnology complex in Kannapolis, Monsanto will build a 9,000-square-foot laboratory this summer in the Core Lab Building, the five-story campus centerpiece.
