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.

In most respects, May 6, 2022, was a typical school day for Amy Paulk Grist. Tift County High School buzzed with end-of-the-year activities. Tift County is the only high school serving Tifton, Georgia, a mostly rural community off I-75, just an hour north of the Florida border. A veteran economics teacher of more than a decade, Amy was wrapping up another successful year at the high school of nearly 2,300 students when her vision started to blur. Something wasn’t right.

Pearl millet wins approval from honey bees and other pollinators
Pearl millet, an annual grass used for grain and forage, can be a good food source for honey bees and hover flies, according to a recent study. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service and University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences researchers studied the impact of pearl millet as a source of insect food by surveying insects collecting and consuming the sucrose-rich pollen of this crop.
