Global Seed Company, University of Idaho Agree on Novel Wheat Pact. The Idaho State Board of Education today approved an innovative agreement between the University of Idaho and Limagrain Cereal Seeds, one of the world’s largest seed companies, that expands graduate education in agriculture and wheat variety development opportunities.
Limagrain Cereal Seeds will contribute to research and education endowments for the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences to fund wheat-focused research and two $20,000 graduate-level assistantships annually. The research endowments will help fund field studies by college faculty members focused on better ways to grow wheat on the Palouse surrounding Moscow.
Jim Peterson, vice president for research for Limagrain Cereal Seeds at Fort Collins, Colo. had the following thoughts “From the Limagrain Cereal Seeds standpoint, we’re really excited about the opportunity to partner with the University of Idaho and by extension with the Idaho Wheat commission. We feel we bring some unique things to the table, a global germplasm base, some modern technologies and the opportunity to partner with the researchers and extension at the University of Idaho to really bring better information and better products to the growers of Idaho”.
