PURPOSE STATEMENT

The Agricultural Research Service was established by the Secretary of Agriculture on November 2, 1953, under the authority of the Reorganization Act of 1949 (5 U.S.C. 1332–15), Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1953, and other authorities. It conducts farm, utilization, and nutrition and consumer use research, plant and animal disease and pest control and eradication activities, and provides Federal meat inspection services.

The program of the Agricultural Research Service is organized under two major areas of activity as follows:

1. Research is conducted under three major categories: (a) farm research (research on crops and livestock and their diseases and pests, soil and water conservation, and agricultural engineering); (b) utilization research and development; and (c) nutrition and consumer use research.
