Welcome to the Alaska Plant Materials Center


The 405 acre Plant Materials Center (PMC), near Palmer was established by the Alaska Legislature in 1972 to promote the state's agricultural industry. Grains, grasses, fruits, potatoes, shrubs, and trees are evaluated for the potential use in Alaska climates. Small quantities of these plant materials are released to Alaskan commercial growers who then increase the production of these materials and make them available for food, ornamental, and conservation purposes.

For more information on the individual Plant Materials Center programs please visit each program's webpages listed on the left or contact the Plant Materials Center directly.
