Research: Formerly known as the Landisville Experiment Station, the Southeast Agricultural Research & Extension Center (SEAREC) is located in Lancaster County, in the heart of the most intensive farming area in Pennsylvania. Southeastern and southcentral Pennsylvania has a different climate than the rest of the state (a longer growing season, warmer average temperatures and higher relative humidity). Because of this, the work done at SEAREC is applicable to most of the Mid-Atlantic states.  Research on the 156 acres at the Center involves the Departments of Crop and Soil Science, Entomology, Horticulture and Plant Pathology plus the USDA and some county extension educators. In addition to providing specific conditions for research, the facility increases opportunities for growers, consumers, and students to observe experiments and to consult with scientists.
