C|)e ;:^arplanti 9lsricultural Cjrperiment g^tation -^ ^W^HIS institution was established under act of Congress in the j^ear 1887, and til. was the first of its kind in this countrj^, thus Maryland can ])oast of estab- lishing the first agricultural experiment station as well as the first Agricultural College. The purpose of this station is to promote the interests of Agricultural Educa- tion and investigation throughout the state of Maryland. It is composed of several departments, and at the head of each is an expert, wlio by natural aptitude and special training directs the management of the investigation pertaining to his department for the best interests of the farmers of the state, and also carries on agricultural research at large. At the present time the station is conducting investigations, principally along the following lines : chemistry, fertilizers, agronomy, horticulture, plant breeding, diseases of plants and animals, dairying, poultry, and entomology. When sufficient data are collected in any of the above phases of the work, they are published in a bulletin form and sent out to the farmers of the state free of charge. The Farmer ' s Institute of the State of Maryland is also under the control and direction of the experiment station, and in this way much valual^le information, pertaining to general farming, plant growing, etc., is disseminated among the farmers of the state by men who have given the best efforts of their life to this work. The experiment stations of this country are becoming more popular every day and their work more distinctly appreciated because more people are drifting from the cities to the country every day, who are totally ignorant of the methods of agriculture, and the experiment station is the great fountain of knowledge to which they rush to drink in the valuable information, which is ch(^erfully given. 11
