The most important barometer of our success is the growers’
successes themselves.
W-L Research has been a provider of superior alfalfa seed for
over thirty years, and in that time has through research
developed seed well-known for its value. At W-L, “value” is defined
as long-term yield, persistence, and quality. These characteristics of
W-L varieties are the cornerstone of our success, and we continue
to measure our success as we always have one grower at a time.

graduate degree.
John O. Almquist, for whom the
awards are named, was on hand at
the presentation to congratulate the
winners. Almquist, who served on
the Penn State faculty for nearly 40
years, retired in 1983. He joined the
research faculty in 1944, six years
before his creation of Penn State’s
Dairy Breeding Research Center.
He received the 1981 Wolf Prize in
Agriculture an award referred to as
the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for
his work in artificial insemination
for livestock improvement. Many
techniques Almquist developed for
cattle have been applied to other
species, including humans.
