The New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station

               "Leading Agriculture Through Partnership"

gardenThe New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station (NHAES) has remained an elemental component of New Hampshire's land grant university heritage and mission, since before UNH was created here in Durham. 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. With expanded statutory directives, and in response to the evolving needs of our many stakeholders, we now steward federal and state funding to provide unbiased and objective research concerning diverse aspects of sustainable agriculture, aquaculture, forest management, and related wildlife and natural resources.

We're pleased to have you visit our website. Please look around, and let us know how we can enhance your experiences in learning about the Experiment Station, as well as in continuously improving the services that we provide to our stakeholders.

The NH Agricultural Experiment Station maintains a firm commitment to equal opportunity of all stakeholders to access our programs, facilities, and information. We strongly encourage and welcome all people, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, veteran’s status, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, marital status, or disability.                                 

 (But) in the next 50 years we're going to have to produce more food than we have in the last 10,000 years, and that is a daunting task. Norman Borlaug, 2009
Agriculture is the mother and the nurse of all other arts. When Agriculture flourishes all other arts develop. When Agriculture fails all other arts cease.  Socrates
