W. B. Andrews Agricultural Systems Research Farm

About Us

The MAFES W.B. Andrews Agricultural Systems Research Farm, formerly known as Ramsey Bottom, is an emblem of progress dedicated to the betterment of the agricultural community.

Acquired by the university in 1964 from Louise S. Ramsey, the 223-acre plot is located on Highway 182, diagonally across from the MAFES R. R. Foil Plant Science Research Center, commonly known as North Farm, making it a prominent locale to showcase the university's commitment to agriculture.

The family of the late Dr. Baker Andrews, an MSU alumnus and former agronomy professor, provided funding to develop the property for row-crop research.

The property is used year-round. In the winter, various research on cover crops is conducted until it's time to plant row crops, when the whole property is full of life and ripe with data to be collected.
