On Feb. 25, 1889, the Oregon legislature established Oregon’s Agricultural Experiment Station (AES) as the research arm of Oregon’s land-grant university. In 125 years since then, AES has grown into a $55 million research engine working across the state to address issues related to healthy agricultural communities, food systems, and natural resources.
