Southeast Agricultural Research and Extension Center

Located in Landisville, PA, the SEAREC is home to Penn State's applied field research program in the south central region of the state.

The work that takes place at the Center reflects the rich agricultural diversity of the region and surrounding Mid-Atlantic states. The Center is located in Lancaster County, in the heart of the most intensive farming area in Pennsylvania.

The Center is a proving ground for the best ideas and methods that come out of the University's laboratories and greenhouses. At SEAREC these concepts are refined and tested in a field setting before being introduced into practice by Pennsylvania growers. SEAREC also serves as a showcase where farmers, industry professionals, consumers and lawmakers gather to learn novel or improved farming practices and gain insight into production agriculture, gardening and scientific research.
