Cache Junction Farm

Established in 2003 110 Acres 

History

The Cache Junction Farm is among our newest facilities. Established in 2003, it is the site of commercial crop production, including alfalfa and grass hay used to feed university animals, seed peas for a seed company, as well as wheat and pinto beans.

Research Topics

Research underway at the Cache Junction Farm includes entomology studies of cereal leaf beetle and other pests, weed control experiments and barley variety trials. USDA Agricultural Research Service scientists are also using space at the farm for bee research and alfalfa trials. Research is also taking place above the farm as water engineers test methods of aerial mapping and ground imaging and the USU-affiliated Space Dynamics Laboratory operates a ground-based LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) instrument to study the atmosphere.
