Edisto Research & Education Center


People! That's what Clemson University's Edisto Research & Education Center (Edisto REC) is all about. It's home to men and women who work as a team to help solve problems facing the South Carolina farmer, particularly the farmer in the Coastal Plain.  Their task is to find better ways to grow and harvest crops, raise beef cattle, and conserve natural resources. It's problem solving centers like Edisto REC that make it possible for consumers to shop at supermarkets stocked with an abundance of high quality food.

Edisto REC is one of five branch stations of the South Carolina Agriculture & Forestry Research System, the research arm of Clemson University's Public Service Activities. The Edisto Experiment Station, as it was originally named, opened its doors near Blackville, in 1937 with 200 acres, three researchers, one tractor and six mules. Since then, it has grown into a 2,354 acre center that includes most of the major soil types of the upper Coastal Plain.
