Agricultural Experiment Station (AES) was established in 2008, working with Agricultural Sci-tech Park Management Committee. Its responsibility is to coordinate the construction and management of the agricultural experimental base both internally and externally, and to provide strong supports and services for the training of agriculture-related talents, scientific research, public services and cultural inheritance.
There are four internal management departments, including Administration Office, Planning and Finance Office, Teaching and Research Service Department and Construction and Maintenance Department.
