Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association
Interview with David Lamphere
There are about 120 companies across the U.S. that are similar to AgResource Inc., a private agricultural research farm located in the small town of Arkansaw, Wisconsin.
AgResource Inc. was established in late 1988 to provide location, facilities, and expertise to the agricultural industry in the form of a contract-based, disinterested third party research organization. It specializes in performance evaluation and providing regulatory safety data for regulatory compliance to manufacturers of products destined to assist growers of agricultural and horticultural crops.
Wisconsin is an especially opportune location with its diverse crops, more so than any other Midwestern state. Arkansaw is ideally located (in western Wisconsin, about 35 miles southwest of Eau Claire) with its highly uniform and irrigated soils.
