Lockeford Plant Materials Center Updated:03/2023

The Lockeford Plant Materials Center (CAPMC) was established in Pleasanton, California and relocated to Lockeford in 1973. The Center provides plant solutions for the diverse Californian landscape and serves the Mediterranean climate portions of California. This area is uniquely characterized by its six-month summer dry season and six-month winter rainy season.

The service area has a complex topography including the Coastal and Central Valleys, California Delta, rolling foot-hills, upland plateaus, and rugged mountains. Agriculture in the service area is extremely intensive and diversified, with annual and perennial specialty crops, including tree crops, rangeland with extensive livestock production, dairies, and timber production. We continue to develop plant technologies to promote conservation and to address resource concerns within our service area.

Our main focus is to develop plant technology for addressing resource concerns, which in California include; soil health, water-use efficiency for water quality and quantity, air quality, wildlife habitat and land restoration. The CAPMC has developed and maintains conservation plant releases, which include native and non-native releases with application for range and pasture enhancement, cover cropping systems and wildlife habitat.
