UW Peninsular Ag Research Station Still Afloat

 

Some fields at the 120-acre UW Peninsular Agricultural Research Station will remain vacant this season. Because of continuing budget cuts, the station has had to eliminate various projects over the past few years. However, station Superintendent Matt Stasiak says the station has been able to partner with local growers and the University Extension to keep the research rolling.

Recently Stasiak and his crew planted a new vineyard to study diseases in recently-developed grape varieties.

The station is also working with the American Malting Barley Association.  Stasiak says there are a number of fields set aside for winter and spring malting barley.

A year and a half ago there was serious talk about shutting the station down.  Stasiak says along with cutting programs the station lost one of three full-time employees, former Superintendent Dick Weidman, but they were able to maintain the station.
