Center Extension and Outreach

This 320 acre facility, established in 1980 near Monmouth in Warren County on soils that are primarily Argiudolls and Haplaquolls is a very productive site, from the standpoints of both crop yield and data generation.  Each year, about 50 different projects are conducted by up to 12 campus-based project leaders and the center superintendent.  Subject matter areas involved in these projects include soil chemistry and fertility, soil management, crop production, weed science, entomology, plant pathology, pest management and environmental quality.
