Support the Panhandle Research & Extension Center
The University of Nebraska Panhandle Research and Extension Center is a facility of the University of Nebraska Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR). Located in Scottsbluff, the center houses 15 faculty, most of whom hold joint appointments in research and extension.; In addition, 18 county-based faculty based in UNL Extension county offices focus on agricultural, family and consumer science, and youth issues.
Our facilities include several hundred acres of research plots, irrigation systems and other equipment, well-equipped greenhouses, and laboratories. Research is focused on crops and conditions specific to the irrigated High Plains of western Nebraska, such as corn, dry edible beans, sugarbeets, potatoes, and many specialty crops or alternative crops that show potential for this region. The Scotts Bluff Ag Lab, surrounding the center headquarters, comprises 156 acres of irrigated cropland.
