Abstract: The agricultural research station plays a vital role in the generation of both new knowledge and appropriate technologies for farmers. However, despite the importance and complexity of running research stations, there is very little information available on how to develop new stations or improve existing ones. This special report is divided into two parts. The first deals with a procedure that can be used to evaluate the physical needs of and for a station. The procedure involves four steps: 1) establishing the needs "for" and "of" an experiment station based on the present and projected requirements of the research programs; 2) reviewing requirements with administrators and scientists; 3) preparing a detailed conceptual plan, and 4) preparing a detailed working plan; The second part deals with some of the management and personnel needs of a station. Management of a station is generally far more complex than most people realize, simply because they do not see the range of activities that a station manager has to handle.
