The Virginia Truck and Ornamentals Research Station, at times hereafter referred to as the “Station,” shall conduct basic and applied research in the fields of horticulture, plant breeding and variety testing, entomology, nematology, plant pathology, plant physiology, and soil science which may bear directly on the interests of commercial growers of vegetable and ornamental crops in Tidewater Virginia. The station shall coordinate its research with related work of the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort. The information acquired pursuant to this section shall be disseminated. The Norfolk and Eastern Shore branches of the station will be retained as active research stations.
