Researchers here are helping to improve agriculture in many ways. continued below...

Research projects are concerned with issues in fish production and nutrition, human nutrition and aging, fruits and berries, vegetables, textiles, dairy products, leather, and more. Safety, production efficiency and sufficiency, quality, nutritional value, and economic value are some of the impacts of our research.

Our scientists have helped develop: milk additives for those who are lactose-intolerant, new varieties of apples, blueberries and raspberries, low-fat cheeses and dairy treats and new methods of color-fast textile dyeing. Many of our accomplishments have been behind the scenes in the area of food safety research.
