FARM PROGRESS THROUGH STATION RESEARCH
The welfare of modern society is intimately interwoven with man's
dependence on scientific research. Research seeks to establish, beyond
any element of doubt, the facts and truths on which we may rely to
preserve our health, develop our resources, and to solve those problems
that stand in the way of human advantage and achievement.
The quality of research and the integrity of the institutions that foster
it and engage in it serve as yardsticks for measuring the current soundness
and future stability and progress of a people.
To serve society, the structure of research needs to be closely integrated
with the needs and problems of the people it is intended to
serve. The State agricultural experiment stations are an important
segment of this structure. The State stations, in close cooperation
with the United States Department of Agriculture, industry, farmers,
farm organizations, other scientific institutions, and scientific societies
join in a nationwide cooperative research system for agriculture. The
scientific findings growing out of this system are the source of the
progressively improving techniques and efficiencies employed by
farmers in their individual farm enterprises whose goal it is to meet
1Issued January 1954. Submitted in accordance with the requirement that
