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.
