Agriculture in New Jersey faces a unique set of challenges – most notably operating in a densely populated, highly-regulated, and high land-value state. Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) is committed to investigating novel ways to support commercial growers while striving for economic and environmental sustainability. From the development of cultivars and introducing crops that thrive under New Jersey’s climate, pest, and resource pressures, implementation of integrated pest management strategies, and timely pest advisories, to expanding into new value-added markets, developing agri-business and transition plans, and achieving professional and farm certifications, Rutgers NJAES remains on the cutting edge to keep agriculture thriving here in the Garden State.
