Collection Description

Historical Note

Coastal Plain Experiment Station is an agricultural research station based at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus as part of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.

In 1918, the Georgia Land Owner's Association, led by Captain H.H. Tift and William Stillwell, successfully lobbied the state legislature to create an agricultural experiment station in the state's coastal plain. The autonomous station would be affiliated with the state's land-grant College of Agriculture located at the University of Georgia and would provide research-based information on coastal plain agriculture.

Generous donations of land and facilities from Captain Tift helped Tifton win the bid for the new experiment station. Opening in 1919 under the direction of S.H. Starr, the 206-acre Coastal Plain Experiment Station became the first experiment station in the nation's vast coastal plain, which stretches from Delaware to Texas. The station is complemented by Research and Education Centers in south Georgia at Attapulgus, Camilla (C. M. Stripling), Midville (Southeast Georgia Center) and Plains (Southwest Georgia Center). UGA researchers also collaborate with USDA Agricultural Research Service scientists based at the station, a partnership that dates to 1924.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of annual reports for various agricultural research initatives of the Coastal Plain Experiment Station dating from 1927-2001. Topics include grass breeding, crop science, animal husbandry and livestock, and agricultural engineering.
