Clemson's Experiment Station is part of a nationwide system of scientists working to improve the quality of life for people in their home state, the nation, and the world. Clemson scientists have been involved in this effort since 1889 when the university was founded. At that time, the South Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station was based on the Clemson campus.
Today, the Experiment Station conducts research to identify critical issues and find solutions that support South Carolina's agriculture and forestry industries.
Research is conducted in laboratories, farms, and forests on the Clemson campus and at five research and education centers strategically located in the state's distinct soil and climate regions. Areas of study include animal production, non-food horticulture crops, food safety, global food security, climate change, community development, natural resources, and sustainable energy.
