Experiment Station Celebrates its 125th Anniversary

Since 1888, the Experiment Station has conducted research in the biological, physical and social sciences, to contribute to the advancement of Iowa's agricultural industry and to improve the economic and social condition of Iowa's families and communities.

The Experiment Station’s work represents the efforts of scientists in nearly 24 departments and centers. Although the work primarily focuses on areas in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the Experiment Station also supports research in other colleges and cooperates with other states' experiment stations to ensure that attention is paid to critical problems, research results are shared and duplication is avoided.
