The University of Idaho Research and Extension Center The University of Idaho Research and Extension Center at Aberdeen was established in 1911 to experiment with different irrigation and dry-farm crops and techniques in southeastern Idaho. The original 80 acre site, planted in 1912, included potatoes, spring wheat, oats, barley, corn, alfalfa, red clover, peas, vetch and flax. Experiments with potatoes were considered the most successful during that first year. Work with potatoes and the small grains has been continuous since those first plantings. For more information, contact the center by telephone at (208) 397-4181or by email at aberdeen@uidaho.edu

The National Small Grains Collection The National Small Grains Collection, at Aberdeen, maintains a collection of small grains from throughout the world including wheat, barley, oat, rice, rye, triticale, and various wild varieties.

The project also evaluates small grains for stress resistance, nutritional content, agronomic merit, and other traits and freely distributes seed samples to breeders and researchers worldwide.

The Aberdeen Plant Materials Center works in cooperation with the University of Idaho, Research and Extension Center to assemble, evaluate, and release new plant materials for use in conservation plantings in portions of Idaho, Nevada, Utah, California and Oregon. Over the past 60 years, the program has developed and released well over 40 improved conservation plants and provided technical leadership for fighting noxious weeds, rehabilitating after wildfire, developing windbreaks, propagating native shrubs, and improving rangelands, pasturelands and wetland areas.
