Storrs Agricultural Experiment Station

College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Research Activity

The College's research is coordinated through the Storrs Agricultural Experiment Station and the Grants Development Office. Our Faculty members have considerable depth of expertise and are active in a wide variety of research activities that address our food system, protect our natural resources and the environment, improve the health and nutrition of our citizens and address the needs of the citizens of Connecticut and beyond.  Postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduates are also engaged in these exciting research actives through Faculty mentoring and training to become experts in their fields. 

The College research is supported by federal, state, extramural and intramural grants, contracts and contributions from the private sector.  Please visit the following links to view the variety of currently funded research projects within the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
