Nebraskan donates more than $3M for wheat research
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - More than $3 million in cash and land has been donated for wheat research by the University of Nebraska. The University of Nebraska Foundation will establish the Stumpf Family Research and Development Fund with the $1 million in cash and the 640 acres of land in southwest Nebraska's Perkins County. The land's market value has been appraised at more than $2 million. Marvin Stumpf III, of Grant, made the gift and says it is given in honor of his family and family's Nebraska heritage. Ronnie Green is vice chancellor of the university's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and he says the donation will provide researchers, faculty members and students the opportunity to make new discoveries on the Stumpf land.
