$5 million gift funds research facility, ups state grain game

17 September 2014, 8:53 pm

PULLMAN, Wash. – The Washington Grain Commission announced Wednesday a $5 million gift to expand facilities and advance grain research at Washington State University. Plant growth facilities are central to developing grain varieties through WSU’s plant breeding programs.

“When the Washington Grain Commission asked researchers at WSU what they felt the biggest limiting factor for moving their research forward was, they told us they needed more greenhouse space,” said Washington Grain Commission Chairman Steve Claassen. “This will be a huge benefit to Washington grain growers as they will be able to plant improved varieties of wheat and barley and they will be available sooner.”

Wanted: Monarch butterflies, last seen heading south

PROSSER, Wash.—Researchers at Washington State University are calling upon the public throughout the western U.S. to report sightings of tagged Monarch butterflies that are making their way from Washington State to as far south as Mexico.

Nematode found in Washington; quarantines unlikely

8 September 2014, 4:45 pm

PULLMAN, Wash. – A close relative of the cereal cyst nematode was discovered in Washington for the first time this summer. Scientists don’t believe quarantines will be required but are assessing the significance of the discovery.

“We’ve been dealing with a similar nematode for several years,” said Timothy Murray, a plant pathologist at Washington State University. “This new species will have a comparable impact to the existing one and we’ll use the same treatments for its control.”
