The New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station (NHAES) has remained an elemental component of New Hampshire's land grant university heritage and mission, since before UNH was created here in Durham. The initial mandate to the novel system of state agricultural experiment stations was to undertake research of importance to agriculture for New Hampshire, New England, and the nation. With expanded statutory directives, and in response to the evolving needs of our many stakeholders, we now steward federal and state funding to provide unbiased and objective research concerning diverse aspects of sustainable agriculture, aquaculture, forest management, and related wildlife and natural resources.
