Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station

The Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station is Oregon’s principal source of knowledge relating to agricultural and food systems, discovering new knowledge to improve quality of life, environmental quality, and economic development in rural and urban communities. The station has 12 locations and more than 400 scientists in 28 academic disciplines working across the state. Last year, AES brought into Oregon more than $55 million in federal research funding.

We’re solving real problems for real people where they live and work

Statewide public service programs are the engines rebuilding Oregon’s economy. Knowledge grows from the ground up, from Extension to research and back again.

Here’s how it works: OSU Extension and research faculty work with business people, growers, individuals, and community leaders. They see first-hand what’s needed in Oregon’s agricultural sectors and communities. Scientists in the Agricultural Experiment Station focus research on critical issues and timely results. Knowledge developed from that research is brought back to the community through Extension’s outreach and engagement.
