With over 100 years of history, the Kaohsiung District Agricultural Research and Extension Station has devoted effort to the improvement of regionally important crops and the development of environmentally friendly cultural practices. After the relocation of headquarter in Nov. 2006, the Station has increased the capacity and facility for research and extension of agricultural innovations. In view of the specific environmental condition in Kao-Ping Area, the Station has the potential to play a key role in tropical agricultural research. Therefore, developing and producing tropical agricultural products of high quality will continue to be highly emphasized in the future. Harmony with the national agricultural policy, we will work towards the establishment of a healthful, efficient, and sustainable agricultural system for the people.
