Agricultural Science Center at Clovis

For more than half a century, research at the Agricultural Science Center at Clovis has helped agricultural producers in eastern New Mexico increase profitability and sustainability with research on limited irrigated and dryland farming systems, alternative crops, and needs of the dairy industry in the Southwest, as determined by producers. Located 15 miles north of the city on State Road 288, the center lies in the heart of the largest crop production area in New Mexico.
