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.
