  • Results of a necropsy performed on a dolphin that died in the Mill River in Gloucester, Mass., indicate the animal had a parasitic infection and hemorrhage in its brain, according to a pathologist with the NH Veterinary Diagnostic Lab at the University of New Hampshire. While there is no risk to humans from this parasite, the event underscores warnings that the public never should interact with animals in the wild that could potentially be carrying parasites and diseases that can be transmitted to humans.

    The U.S. population growth rate last year was the lowest in 100 years. From 2010 to 2019, rural America lost population for the first time in history, and COVID-19 is likely to further exacerbate this trend, according to a researcher with the NH Agricultural Experiment Station Learn More
  • Scientists are conducting forage legume research at the experiment station's Kingman Research Farm in Madbury, N.H.
    Over the last decade, interest in forage legumes for grazing and as stored feed has increased among the region’s dairy farmers. At an upcoming virtual research field day, scientists with the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station at the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture will provide results from ongoing research that aims to assist farmers in maximizing the quality and nutritional benefits of legumes for milk production.

Science for the Public Good

Locally Inspired. Globally Important.

As the university's first research organization, the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station has been an elemental component of New Hampshire's land-grant university heritage and mission since 1887. We provide unbiased and objective research on sustainable agriculture and foods, horticulture, forest management and related wildlife, the environment, natural resources, and quality of life topics. 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 scientists worldwide to directly benefit New Hampshire and New England.
