Agricultural Experiment Station

Welcome to the Office of Research and Agricultural Experiment Station! 

Our research mission is to find solutions to current problems, as well as opportunities for tomorrow. The new knowledge created from our research enhances the quality of life in South Dakota through the beneficial use and development of human, economic, and natural resources.

Our research mission is one of the cornerstones of a land grant university. In addition to enhancing the quality of life in our state, our research directly supports the teaching programs offered by the College of Agriculture & Biological Sciences, the College of Education & Human Sciences, and the educational program delivered by SDSU Extension.

With six field stations and more than 17,000 acres of land across the state devoted to scientific exploration, the Agricultural Experiment Station is the largest public and privately funded research organization in the state. Since 1887, we have used science to find solutions to pressing problems, and identify new opportunities for our state.
