WARC and all other MSU research centers will be closed to the public until further notice. Please contact us by phone or email during this time.


WARC Field Days

Every year growers and the general public are invited to tour the WARC and learn about current research.  The event includes a free BBQ and the opportunity to sample crops and value-added products made from the fruits grown at the station.  WARC's field day for 2020 has been cancelled.
