The Agricultural Science Center at Los Lunas was established in 1957. Since then, research has focused on agronomic and horticultural crops native to the area. The center primarily serves the Middle Rio Grande area and portions of central New Mexico.
Dr. Tess Grasswitz, Extenstion Urban/Small Farm IPM Specialist, has been performing pest management studies on several types of crops. She has been working on solutions for squash bug infestations and controlling peach tree insects.
