Evans Research Farm

Animal Science Farm Field and Barns

The Evans Research Farm, just south of Logan, is devoted primarily to forage improvement. More than 300 hybrids and several improved grass cultivars have been developed from a worldwide collection of wheatgrasses growing on the farm. In addition, researchers are also investigating whether poplar trees effectively take up excess nutrients from animal waste applied as fertilizer, preventing groundwater contamination. The trees also provide a windbreak, and can be harvested to make wood products.
