Storrs Agricultural Experiment Station

 

Storrs Agricultural Experiment Station

The Federal government established the state Agricultural Experiment Station (AES) network through the Hatch Act of 1887, in an attempt to ensure that agricultural research would be conducted throughout the United States. Experiment stations are part of a total program involving research, Cooperative Extension, and higher education at land-grant universities in every state. The University of Connecticut is the State's 1882 land-grant Institution and its research program is an integral part of AES.

The Storrs Agricultural Experiment Station (SAES) operates within UConn's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Research Office. SAES administers funds for research and facility operations that assist in advancing agriculture, health, environmental quality, and natural resource concerns in Connecticut. We also promote research endeavors that will attract external funding.

We provide support for the formula fund application process, post award project management, report requirements, and a link to related resources.

SAES Publications:

Until the mid-1990s, research funded by the Storrs Agricultural Experiment Station was published primarily as stand-alone bulletins, research reports and monographs. Many of these documents are available as pdf files in DigitalCommons@UConn, a digital repository of the intellectual output of the University of Connecticut's faculty, staff, and students.
