Agricultural Experiment Station
The Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station (AES) conducts research in agriculture, forestry, animal science and natural resources that benefits the citizens of Missouri.
This research is geared to making the most effective use possible of the state's natural resource base, including its people resources, in an increasingly global economy. We strive to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to us.
Farms, Centers and Forests
AES operates a system of farms, centers and forests around the state to meet the regional research and demonstration needs of agricultural producers and natural resource managers.
