The Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center is located in Berrien County, which is centered in the most horticulturally diverse region of the state. Breeding several types of fruit and conducting variety evaluations of numerous fruits and vegetables are just part of the work done at the 350-acre site. Additionally, research at the center focuses on evaluating production practices, including the use of high tunnels for fruits and vegetables. Woody ornamental, Christmas tree and field crop projects add to the diversity of this facility’s research program. The center hosts several indoor educational meetings and field days each year, and viewing plots during daylight hours is encouraged.
