Peninsular Research Station thrives through challenges

The Peninsular Agricultural Research Station in Sturgeon Bay is continuing its mission to farms and orchards despite some changes and challenges.  Like other state agencies, the facility has faced budget cuts and that resulted in organizational changes.  The Peninsular Agricultural Research Station, like the state's 11 other stations, is no longer run by an on-site station superintendent. That role is handled by Mike Peters, ARS Director at U-W Madison's College of Agricultural Life Sciences.  Peters says the Peninsular station continues to meet it's mission, with help from other organizations.

 


The station continues to partner with the USDA for the NRSP-6 Potato Genebank, which is located at the station.  Peters says the work by UW and USDA staffers at that facility is one of national importance.

 

 

Peters says with the additional partnership with U-W Extension Service efforts have been successful, so far, in reassuring clients that the Peninsular Agriculture Research Station can more than meet its mission.
