Aberdeen Research and Extension Center
The Aberdeen Research and Extension Center conducts research into many of Idaho’s most important crops, including potatoes, wheat and barley. Operated by the University of Idaho College of Agricultural and Life Sciences through the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station, the center conducts research into plant breeding and crop production.
The center also supports close collaborative efforts with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service, which focuses on potato and small grains germplasm improvement and on increasing rainbow trout production efficiency through use of grain-based feeds. The center supports discovery and development of native plants for the horticulture industry.
