Secure our farmer’s future! Modern agriculture relies on rapidly emerging technologies to stay productive and competitive while protecting range, forest and farmland for the next generations. You can gift your grain to support any area at WSU, including 4-H, Scholarships and Athletics. Please consider making your gift to an area of our greatest need – supporting the operating funds for the research farms that are critical to providing science-based solutions for our farmers, including:
Cook Agronomy Farm »
The Cook Agronomy Farm, is named in honor of world-renowned plant-pathologist and former college dean, Dr. R. James Cook. Located on 140 acres five miles northeast of Pullman, work here is focused on developing new technologies for farmers, including direct seed cropping systems and precision agriculture and variable fertilizer, herbicide and seeding rate technologies. Part of the Farm has been intensively grid sampled at 370 GPS-referenced sites for data on soil characteristics, soil nutrients, soil water content and crop yield, grain protein, weed seedbank, and soilborne pathogens. Give to the Cook Agronomy Farm Excellence Fund, or to the Cook Agronomy Farm Endowment fund that will provide income to the farm in perpetuity.
Lind Dryland Research Station »
The Lind Dryland Research Station, where researchers focus on challenges unique to farming the arid lands of our state. This 1320 acre location, with 8 – 12 inches of annual precipitation, has the lowest rainfall of any state or federal facility devoted to dry land research in the United States. WSU faculty and USDA scientists work on breeding and variety adaptation, weed and disease control, soil fertility, erosion control, and residue management. Give to the Lind Dryland Research Station Excellence Fund, or to the Lind Dryland Research Endowment fund that will provide income to the farm in perpetuity.
Spillman Agronomy Farm »
The Spillman Agronomy Farm, where many of the highest-producing grain varieties serving Northwest farmers get their start. Located on 382 acres five miles southeast of Pullman, WA in the midst of the rich Palouse soils, Spillman is a cornerstone of the WSU breeding program in cereal grains and legumes. Give to the Spillman Farm Excellence Fund, or to the Spillman Farm Endowment fund that will provide income to the farm in perpetuity.
4-H – Your Best Investment is in our Youth!! By supporting your state or county 4‑H programs, you will foster new opportunities for youth to grow strong and make an impact where it matters most. These opportunities help young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication, and social skills – tools that will give them a competitive edge in their future endeavors.
Undergraduate Scholarships provide opportunities that last a lifetime and helps WSU build the next generation of leaders, thinkers and global citizens. Today, scholarships are even more crucial to beginning, continuing and completing a college education. You can support departmental or college level scholarships by making a Gift of Grain.
