Donation amounts to more than a hill of beans
The university’s Agricultural Research, Development and Education Center and its Dry Bean Breeding Project recently donated 3,500 pounds of dried pinto beans to the Food Bank for Larimer County and the Weld Food Bank, which assist people in need throughout northern Colorado. That’s nearly two tons of beans.
The Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station (CAES) is committed to finding practical solutions to food and natural resources challenges facing the people of Colorado. Our research efforts extend across the entire campus, involving faculty and staff from more than 15 academic departments in seven colleges, and reaches from the main Colorado State University campus in Fort Collins, to seven off-campus research centers around the state. Our mission is to conduct research that addresses the evolving business, climate, and policy conditions that affect farmers, ranchers, and rural communities.
