Aberdeen Research and Extension Center
The University of Idaho Research and Extension Center at Aberdeen is one of six off-campus centers of the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station. The Aberdeen Center’s primary focus is potato and cereal production, although research on sugarbeets, alfalfa, canola, and other crops grown in eastern Idaho are also conducted at the center.
The Aberdeen Research and Extension Center is known nationally and internationally, and each year the center receives visitors from countries throughout the world. The center hosts several field days annually, and the faculty also participate in winter commodity conferences and training sessions. The purpose of these activities is to present information to producers and associated agri-business personnel on cultivator performance, improved crop and pest management practices, and marketing.
The USDA Small Grains and Potato Germplasm Research Unit is also located at the Center as is the Natural Resources Conservation Service Plant Materials Center.
