About HARC

HARC, near New Franklin, sits at the interface of the loess hills and Missouri River bottom and provides a scenic, historic and scientific setting for development of horticultural- and agroforestry-related studies. Interdisciplinary cooperation allows researchers from multiple disciplines, including entomology, plant pathology, horticulture, agronomy, animal science and agroforestry, to combine research efforts to address an array of issues. Integrated studies of crop, livestock and forestry practices are occurring, as is the development of superior lines for timber and nut meat production. The Flood Tolerance Laboratory and Zone Six Arboretum are located there.
