Welcome to the Eastern Virginia Agricultural Research and Extension Center

The Eastern Virginia AREC is located near Warsaw in the coastal plain of Virginia, which is primarily a grain-growing region.

Our research programs focus on development of new wheat, barley, and soybean varieties by providing major field support for the Virginia Tech crop-breeding programs in these areas. Other projects include disease, pest, and fertility management of these crops. 

Field days and tours at the Eastern Virginia AREC are held each year to showcase our research efforts, to introduce new varieties that are nearing release, and to educate visitors about the production and management of wheat, barley, and soybeans in eastern Virginia.
