SPESS Research


The Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station research is conducted through approved projects that meet specific criteria. Each project is assigned a CRIS number which is used to track the progress of the research and to report the project status to the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station and U.S. Department of Agriculture. CRIS project reports from all states are available from the on-line archives in Washington, D.C.
