Making Life Better

For more than 100 years, scientists working at University of Georgia Agricultural Experiment Stations have conducted research to improve the quality of life for Georgians and for citizens worldwide.

Their research is conducted in laboratories across the state on three main UGA research campuses, located in Athens, Griffin and Tifton; six research and education centers; and research farms. At these locations, researchers can conduct experiments under varying geographic and climatic conditions across the state.

These studies focus on making our food supply safer and longer-lasting, breeding landscape plants that use less water and require less pesticides, monitoring greenhouse gases and other pollutants, creating leaner cuts of meat through alternative livestock diets and creating new and useful products from crop by-products.

UGA agricultural scientists continue to conduct ground-breaking and life-changing research in much the same way their counterparts did 100 years ago when they bred Empire Cotton, a variety that saved the state's cotton industry and put cotton back on the throne in Georgia agriculture.
