About Agricultural Research

The Research Program component of CAFS serves to enrich and broaden the knowledge and research base in agriculture, food and engineering technology to benefit the citizens of Florida, the nation and the world. The program goals are:

  • To conduct basic and applied research in agriculture, food and engineering technology;
  • To conserve and protect natural resources and the environment;
  • To develop alternative sustainable agricultural systems for improving farm profitability; and
  • To enhance rural development programs while maintaining an adequate, high quality, safe and affordable food supply.

Research Program provides support to the Teaching as well as the Cooperative Extension Program through innovative projects and research studies which address critical issues and are need driven. The main goal is to benefit our stakeholders, i.e., students, small/limited resource farmers, consumers, agricultural producers and agricultural industry at- large.
