Growing New Hampshire's Agricultural Economy Through Innovation and Partnership

As the university's original research organization, the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station is a world-class research facility that has remained an elemental component of New Hampshire's land-grant university heritage and mission since 1887.

Our scientists manage more than 50 research projects at any one time, partner with state and regional farmers, growers, and producers, and collaborate with leading researchers worldwide to directly benefit New Hampshire and New England.
