• Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have launched an integrated aquaculture farming research project that aims to provide a model for integrating land-based aquaculture systems with hydroponic plant production systems that can be used locally to increase food production. Learn More
  • University of New Hampshire researchers have found that using black tarps and cover crops successfully suppressed weeds in an organic vegetable system, allowing scientists to forgo tilling, which can have deleterious effects on soil. Learn More
  • Scientists from the NH Agricultural Experiment Station at the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture will discuss their innovative agricultural and forestry research at a twilight meeting/research field day Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2016, at Kingman Farm in Madbury. Learn More
  • Have you ever tasted a kiwiberry? During September, the University of New Hampshire’s kiwiberry research team invites the public to sample kiwiberries at farmers markets across the state. Researchers will use the public feedback to hone breeding goals and assess consumer demand. Learn More
  • New research conducted by the University of New Hampshire has found that while all polices aimed at reducing plastic bag waste had their pros and cons, reducing plastic bag usage was most successful when taxes on bags were high enough to trigger a behavior change. Learn More

Leading Agriculture Through Partnership

As the university's original research organization, the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station (NHAES) has remained an elemental component of New Hampshire's land-grant university heritage and mission since 1887. The initial mandate to the novel system of State Agricultural Experiment Stations was to undertake research of importance to agriculture for New Hampshire, New England, and the nation. We steward federal and state funding to provide unbiased and objective research concerning diverse aspects of sustainable agriculture and foods, aquaculture, forest management and related wildlife, environmental, natural resources and rural community topics. On average, our scientists manage approximately 50 research projects at any one time.
