The Science and Technology Program (S&T) provides scientific, certification and analytical support services to the agricultural community. Our services can help you market products domestically and internationally by providing sound, reliable, scientific services and technical support.

S&T supports AMS and other USDA agencies, Federal and State agencies, and private sector food and agricultural industries. The private sector is served on a fee-for-service basis. Private sector stakeholders include farmers and growers, plant breeders, processors, food and agricultural exporters, laboratories and consumers.

We prepare and train our staff to provide outstanding services and exceed our customer expectations. Our programs employ experienced, conscientious team members who use state-of-the-art technologies to provide innovative cost-effective results and we aspire to provide excellence in personalized customer service.

S&T generates accurate, unbiased results in a timely manner.
