Research Impacts

Real-world solutions to real-world problems.

Research in the College of Agricultural Sciences is at the very heart of Penn State’s land-grant mission: directing our minds and assets at solving the problems and seizing the opportunities facing the people of our state, our country, and the world.  

Impact Area Themes

Research in the agricultural sciences addresses an extraordinarily diverse range of problems that impact our everyday lives. From the molecular to plant and livestock breeding and from farm sustainability to ecosystem modeling, our researchers are helping to ensure that solutions to problems are economically viable, socially acceptable, and equitable.
