Research for Agriculture, the Environment,
Consumers, Families and Communities

The Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station is the research component of the Division of Agriculture. AAES is the primary research support agency for Arkansas farmers and ranchers, food processors, related industries and consumers. Research topics also include issues that impact the families, communities and natural resources associated with Arkansas agriculture.

We conduct basic and applied research at five research and extension centers and six research stations around the state, as well as at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville; the University of Arkansas at Monticello; the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff; and Arkansas State University, Jonesboro. AAES research discoveries allow Arkansas farmers, businesses, communities and families to adopt new technologies and products, and adapt to changes in regulations. Our research personnel maintain partnerships with state, federal and international agencies and professional societies that connect us to worldwide communities of scientists.
