Idaho Foundation Seed Program

The Idaho Foundation Seed Program is based at the Kimberly Research and Extension Center and is responsible for transfer of crop varieties from breeding programs to producers. The program produces and conditions a wide variety of crops at research and Extension centers throughout the state.

Currently, the Foundation Seed Program maintains approximately 120 varieties of wheat, barley, oats, beans, potatoes, peas, chickpeas, lentils, rapeseed, grasses, forbs and forage legumes. The majority of seed production is done on university owned farms by research and Extension center staff. All breeder and foundation class seed fields are inspected by the Idaho Crop Improvement Association. Each research and Extension center has become somewhat specialized, though many crops may be produced at multiple locations.

  • The Moscow Research and Extension Agronomy Farm has the major breeder and foundation seed emphasis in rapeseed, canola, peas, chickpeas, grass, clover and small grains.
  • The Kimberly Research and Extension Center produces breeder and foundation seed for dry beans, small grains, peas and grass seed. Kimberly also serves as the headquarters for the Idaho Foundation Seed Program.
  • The Aberdeen Research and Extension Center breeder and foundation seed production includes small grains and grass seed.
  • The Tetonia Research and Extension Center breeder and foundation seed production includes potatoes and small grains.
