Southwest Center Industrial Gifts Fund

Since 1959, the Southwest Center has conducted problem-solving research projects and outreach activities that are relevant to the agricultural needs in southwest Missouri and throughout the state. The Center, located in Mt. Vernon in Lawrence County, was established to provide agricultural research of interest to the citizens of southwest Missouri through the purchase of an 898-acre site that represents soil types found in the region. The Southwest Center has become an important part of the region’s agricultural community. The programs run the gamut from sustainable ag practices to forage research. Your support of the Southwest Center will ensure that ag research and education continues to thrive in Missouri. Together we can make a difference for our industry and our community!
