University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Research works with instruction and extension to support Georgia’s $75 billion food and fiber industry, the largest sector of the state’s economy. CAES scientists solve agricultural and environmental problems across the state, the nation and the world.
Our diverse research portfolio is based on a well-integrated blend of fundamental and translational research. We are known nationally and internationally as leaders in poultry science, plant breeding, genetics and genomics, food safety and entomology. We are home to internationally recognized Centers of Excellence in plant breeding and genomics; food quality, food safety, and product development; and animal genetics, reproductive technology, and nutrition.
Our statewide network of Experiment Stations and Research and Education Centers cover more than 11,000 acres and provide unprecedented opportunities for problem-solving research and technology transfer to agricultural producers and businesses.
UGA in general is a leader in technology commercialization based on university research. For the past 5 years, UGA has ranked among the top 5 of all U.S. universities for the total number of licenses and options executed. Typically about 75% of the university’s licensing revenue is generated by the CAES, primarily from royalties associated with patented plant cultivars.
