A Brief History of Leyendecker Plant Science Research Center
Leyendecker headquarters is nestled amongst pecan trees that Mr. Max Johnson's grand dad, Crosby planted nearly 90 years ago.
Max Johnson and his wife, Jo, lived in the same building before they sold it to Bobby Mayfield back in 1943. Leyendecker was purchased by the University in 1969 from B.M. Mayfield.
The farm consists of 203.00 acres. Some of the projects occurring at Leyendecker are: Hoop house project, cotton, chile, alfalfa and onion plant breeding, precision farming, pecan research,drip irrigation research, and a multitude of other projects and programs.
