Southwest Michigan Research & Extension Center (Est. 1987)
The Southwest Michigan Research & Extension Center is located in a very diverse agricultural region of the state. Fruit and vegetable breeding and variety evaluations are just part of the work done at the 350-acre site. Other projects include cherry rootstock testing, peach production, and establishment and production practices for table and wine grapes (Michigan is the No. 4 producer of grapes in the country, most of them juice grapes). The center hosts several educational meetings each year, including demonstrations on proper pesticide storage and use.
