Agricultural research is foundational in the land-grant university mission – education for everyone, research for scientifically-based decisions and extension outreach to help ensure best practices are being used. (Statistics CAES Impact Statements)

Our statewide research impact

The Research and Education Centers (RECs) play a central role in this mission by providing faculty and students with the opportunity to conduct experiments across a wide range of environments and production systems. CAES has eight off-campus REC facilities located throughout the state.

This research network is vital to Georgia agriculture and collectively allows faculty and students to address local production concerns as well as to answer more fundamental research questions and further the development of new technologies related to agriculture and natural resources.
