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.
