Research & Extension Centers
The WSU Puyallup Research and Extension Center unites a rich past of education and research with a critical and important need: the ability for institutions of higher education to develop sound science, instruction and outreach to meet the needs of future urban communities and their residents.
The WSU Prosser Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center is the focal point for the University, the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), and the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) research, extension, and certification programs that address the concerns of irrigated agriculture.
Entomologists at the Tree Fruit Research & Extension Center in Wenatchee strive to develop better pest management practices through advancements in the understanding of insect biology, behavior, and the interactions between orchard ecosystems and the inputs that are necessary to produce quality tree fruit crops.
The mission of WSU Mount Vernon Research Center is to serve the agricultural, horticultural, and natural resource science interests of the state through research and extension activities that are enhanced by the unique conditions of northwestern Washington: a mild marine climate, diverse small and mid-sized farming enterprises and close rural-urban interface.
