Blue Creek Dryland Research Farm
The Utah Agricultural Experiment Station operates farms near Utah State University and at sites throughout the state that reflect Utah’s wide-ranging climate, geography and growing conditions. The farms are outdoor laboratories where researchers’ theories meet the challenges and unpredictability of nature and answers are found that help farmers, ranchers and resource managers.
Featured here is the Blue Creek Dryland Research Farm, where the focus is on small grains breeding and other dryland agriculture. Scientists from the USDA-Agricultural Research Service Forage and Range Research Laboratory (housed at USU) also conduct field work at Blue Creek.
