The Pullman Plant Materials Center (WAPMC) in Pullman, Washington provides conservation plant solutions for North Idaho, Eastern Washington, and Eastern Oregon. The Center focuses on providing vegetative technologies for conservation and soil health in cropland, orchards & vineyards, rugged scablands, forests, and native rangelands to NRCS field staff.
The service area of the Center faces many resource challenges. Winter winds strip unprotected topsoil and create dust clouds that degrade air quality for people living downwind. Melting snow erodes unprotected soil that pollutes receiving waters. Many of the region’s streams are important for salmon and steelhead trout spawning and rearing.
