Central Maryland Research & Education Center


As part of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the Central Maryland Research and Education Center (CMREC) is comprised of five Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station (MAES) research farms and associated facilities which are located in two central Maryland counties within the greater Baltimore-Washington population center.

CMREC Headquarters is located less than a mile from the Clarksville Facility and houses the Center's administrative offices. University of Maryland Extension houses faculty and staff at Headquarters and the Upper Marlboro Facility.

These off-campus facilities support a broad range of research and extension programs for faculty representing five of the academic departments within the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR) at the University of Maryland.

Michael Dwyer is the Center Director (acting) for CMREC, as well as for the Western Maryland and Lower Eastern Shore Research and Education Centers (WMREC & LESREC).
