dc.description.abstractAgricultural research in Alaska is cooperatively sponsored by the University and the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Since 1948 the federal government has assumed major responsibility and leadership in this field, and has contributed generously to its financial support and technical'direction, over and above the normal Hatch Act allotments. Largely developmental in character, agriculture (including marketing) research is adminstered from the Alaska Agricultural Experiment Station headquarters at Palmer -- an installation maintained by the Agricultural Research Service -- rather than from the College Campus. Some plant breeding and plant pathology studies are conducted at this site, together with modest investigations of plant characteristics involving winter hardiness, cold survival, and plant responses to photoperiod and light quality. All investigations are supervised by eight senior project leaders, assisted by twelve junior leaders and a labor and clerical staff.en_US
