Finally Open- OSU Foundation Seed Stocks Warehouse in Stillwater Celebrated on Saturday

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 05:22:22 CST

Finally Open- OSU Foundation Seed Stocks Warehouse in Stillwater Celebrated on Saturday Just ahead of the OSU- K-State football game on Saturday, Oklahoma State Universityís Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the OSU Foundation hosted the grand opening of Oklahoma Foundation Seed Stocksí new 20,000 square-foot complex. The new facility doubles the operationís previous space and includes a warehouse, cold room, machinery shed and offices. After the short program midday, Dean and Vice President of the Division of Ag at OSU, Dr. Tom Coon, told Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays that the new warehouse reflects how the University "can be more entrepreneurial" in bridging the work of the OSU Wheat Improvement team with the commercial wheat industry in the state of Oklahoma.

The new building complex includes a warehouse, seed cleaning facility, cold room, machinery shed and offices. The warehouse has been badly needed for several years, as the volume of seed produced, cleaned and distributed by Foundation Seed has more than doubled during the past ten years. While the facility will primarily house the varieties developed by the Wheat Improvement Team and marketed by Oklahoma Genetics, improved peanut seed varieties will also be handled and distributed. Oklahoma Foundation Seed also distributes improved genetics for producers growing barley, soybeans, alfalfa, rye and oats.

Listen to Dr. Coon and Ron talk about the new facility and how it is a piece of the puzzle when it comes to the improvements needed to help the Division of Ag best serve the farmers, ranchers and the agribusiness community of Oklahoma and the region.
