San Luis Valley Research Center

We take pride in our longstanding commitment to San Luis Valley communities and our unparalleled work developing potato varieties for Colorado growers. Our staff value the region’s historic agricultural practices and work collaboratively to enhance disease and pest control strategies. Along with potato research, the SLVC also maintains the century-old seed certification program, a valued service for our growers.

Research and Engagement

The SLVRC continues to invest in our commitment to the people and communities in San Luis Valley. We work with growers and industry experts on development projects using the latest technologies and evidence available. Our outreach and extension programs keep our students engaged and our growers informed and competitive in current and future markets.
