Potato Storage Facility

The Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable Storage Research Facility was conceived, designed and built by the potato and vegetable growers of Wisconsin.  It was donated to the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2006.

The facility contains nine bulk storage bins and nine lockers for pallet research.  The bulk bins hold 2,000 cwt (200,000 pounds) of bulk-piled potatoes.

Research conducted at this facility is a cooperative effort between Wisconsin potato growers, industry representatives and University of Wisconsin-Madison research groups.
