Powell R&E Center
 

The Powell Research and Extension Center (PREC) is one mile north of Powell on Highway 25 at an elevation of 4,374 feet. The 30-year average annual precipitation is 6.67 inches. May and June are the only two months that exceed one inch of average precipitation.

Employees at PREC include one faculty researcher, a research associate I, a farm manager, two assistant farm managers, and an office associate. PREC personnel conduct research and provide services to benefit the northwestern Wyoming counties of Fremont, Hot Springs, Washakie, Big Horn, and Park—and beyond.

One hundred seventy-five of the 220 acres at the PREC are irrigated cropland. Research focuses include agronomic weed control, irrigation, cropping systems, high tunnel production, variety performance testing, transgenic variety response to herbicide treatments, and alternative crops. The center participates in numerous regional research and education projects.
