Support Advanced Facility

Support the Idaho Center for Plant and Soil Health at the Parma Research and Extension Center

The University of Idaho Parma Research and Extension Center has developed a rich history of providing critical information to growers across different crops while building significant relationships with partners in industry. While research and Extension efforts remain strong to the present day, emerging specialty crops, advances in technology and continuing pressure from historic pests and invasive species will require enhanced facilities and faculty expertise in order to remain relevant with the partners served by the Parma Research and Extension Center.

Existing facilities at the Parma Research and Extension Center

  • Were constructed over 50 years ago
  • Face substantial need for modernization of infrastructure and equipment
  • Inhibit the potential of our research faculty and staff; faculty conducting research at this location have significant impact on industry despite the facilities in which they work

A new Idaho Center for Plant and Soil Health at the Parma Research and Extension Center will

  • Better equip faculty to diagnose and address grower concerns and issues facing industry
  • Provide an opportunity to increase research space
  • Create an environment to better recruit and retain world-class faculty who will preserve the strength of the research conducted at the center

Project funding

The Idaho Center for Plant and Soil Health facility will cost approximately $7 million. The U of I College of Agricultural and Life Sciences anticipates support will be generated through a combination of private industry support, state funding and contribution from the University of Idaho.
