Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station
The Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station (OAES) conducts research on agriculture, natural resources, rural economies and social issues to address the needs of Oklahomans.
Our research is a collaborative effort between farmers and ranchers, agriculture commodity groups, industry, state agencies, and federal competitive grants. OAES research expenditures account for more than $50 million annually and directly support Oklahoma’s agricultural industry.
