Because of cuts in state funding and to make more efficient use of resources, the LSU AgCenter began closing the Calhoun Research Station as of July 1, 2011.

The AgCenter will retain an 80-acre forest stand for research, but the remainder will revert to control by the Ouachita Parish Police Jury. 

For more information, please contact Dr. John Russin, Vice Chancellor for Research, LSU AgCenter.

About Calhoun Research Station
About Calhoun Research Station

(Video) The Calhoun Research Station, established in 1888, is the oldest facility of its kind in the state. Research has focused on dairy, peaches and watermelons. Today, the focus is on wood products and helping the forestry industry. A goal of the station’s research is to waste no wood. Scientists are working to extract chemicals from treated wood and recycle both for beneficial use. Other research includes uses for low-quality wood products while improving the environment.
