Dedicated as the Appalachian Soil and Water Conservation Research Laboratory in 1980, the Beaver, West Virginia research facility focused on problems associated with acid and marginally productive soils, forage production, and environmental issues. In the 1990’s the facility was renamed the Appalachian Farming Systems Research Center and boasts a multidisciplinary team of scientists and support personnel working to develop knowledge and technology to increase the profitability of small-farm agricultural enterprises in the Appalachian region while enhancing soil and water quality and environmental integrity.
