Station History

University of Idaho College of Agricultural and Life SciencesAs a land grant university, the University of Idaho upholds a three-pronged mission of teaching, research and Extension. The Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) holds this mission at the core of its programming.

The Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station (IAES) is the research division of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and is responsible for the college’s statewide programming in agricultural research.

The station operates nine agricultural research and extension centers around the state and oversees their staffs. Federal and state funding administered by the station supports the salaries of college researchers—both faculty and technical support staff—and their research operations. In this way, every college faculty member who conducts research is affiliated with the station.
