• Scientists are trying to understand the potential risk of stem rust spreading and, perhaps even more importantly, evolving greater virulence in the region. Long term, they also hope to contribute to a genetic solution that reduces global yield losses to the disease. Learn More
  • Katherine Sinacore, who will graduate this May with a PhD in Natural Resources and Earth System Sciences, conduced research with New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station scientists Dr. Heidi Asbjornsen and Dr. Ted Howard. Learn about why she chose UNH, what she researched, and what she's gained from her research experience.

  • Researchers have long known that many primates make decisions about the number of children they have based on the availability of resources such as food. Now new research from the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of New Hampshire finds that some insects – specifically burying beetles – also choose to limit offspring when food is scarce.

  • Feeding prepartum dairy cows the vitamin niacin prior to giving birth improved the quality of their colostrum, which is the first milk calves drink, according to new research from the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station. Colostrum is essential to building the immune systems of calves, and thus, their survival. 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.
