Center Extension and Outreach

Located adjacent to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus, the mission of the 1,000 acre Crop Sciences Research and Education Center (CSREC) is to provide land, equipment, and facilities for plant/soil research through a field laboratory setting. CSREC assists scientists and extension personnel by providing a central place to plan, coordinate, and conduct field research. On-campus teaching is supported by providing field laboratory facilities for graduate students, as well as educating undergraduates through work and field-trip experiences. Extension and international agricultural efforts are strengthened by organized field days such as Agronomy Day, special tours, and training sessions to meet the needs of the agricultural community.
