WELCOME TO HAMMOND RESEARCH STATION
21549 Old Covington Highway · Hammond, LA · 70403 - 0533
Phone: (985) 543-4125 · Fax: (985) 543-4124

Centruy-old pine trees tower over acres of lush landscaping at the Hammond Research Station. Nestled in the woods six miles from the city of Hammond, the station covers about 150 acres. Established in 1922 as the Fruit and Truck Experiment Station, the facility has traditionally served the strawberry and vegetable industries. Today’s research focus is landscape horticulture, including plant selection, fertility, weed control and plant growth regulators. Scientists evaluate more than 500 ornamental plants per year and each spring and fall release a list of Super Plants that grow well in all parts of Louisiana.
