During the past biennium there has been a general expansion in the research program of the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station. Although some of the investigations were curtailed by lack of personnel and equipment and the pressure of wartime assignments, many of the staff were able to devote more time to research because of a lessening of the teaching load at the College. The emergency caused a re-examination of the research program, old projects, no longer urgent were weeded out, others were revised to meet the needs of the changing times, and many new projects were initiated to extend the research into problems not previously investigated because of lack of funds and personnel. Contributions to the support of research from state and private agencies greatly increased over the previous period. Many new agreements with federal and private agencies were drawn up for the prosecution of cooperative research toward the solution of problems for the betterment of Utah agriculture.
