  • Saginaw Valley Research and Extension Center (Frankenmuth, MI)

    Location:

    3775 S. Reese Road, Frankenmuth, MI 48734

    Description:

    Most of the dry bean and sugar beet production in Michigan is located in the Saginaw Valley and the Thumb area. Michigan is the No. 1 producer of black beans, the No. 2 producer of all dry beans and the No. 4 producer of sugar beets in the country. Research at the center has allowed Michigan producers to be national leaders in a variety of commodities by offering growers the latest information on crop management and tillage techniques, new variety trials, and pest and weed control with minimal environmental impact. In addition to dry bean and sugar beet research, studies at the 310-acre site explore other important rotational crops including corn, wheat and soybeans.
