Welcome to WSU Mount Vernon NWREC, we take pride in the experimental field research activities that have taken place here and contributed to the success of Washington’s agricultural enterprises during the last half century. Approximately 145 acres at NWREC are dedicated to applied field research trials on a wide variety of vegetable, fruit, seed and cereal crops, as well as soil health and sustainability. Our center provides a dynamic research setting with its rich alluvial soils, mild marine climate, and regional stakeholders who are interested in, supportive of, and even directly involved with field research.
As scientists and as part of Washington State University, we remain committed to high quality research efforts, transparency and integrity in research methodologies, and prompt delivery of research-based information. When you work at WSU NWREC, we ask that you share in that commitment as well. Here we outline the policies and procedures for using farmland at WSU NWREC. We hope that your research experience is productive and favorable.
Dr. Carol Miles
