Welcome to the CAFE office for research and the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station! We provide the support and infrastructure to facilitate and expedite the solutions to important unanswered questions that impact agriculture, the environment and the health and well-being of society. Our research enterprise represents over 200 faculty directly involved in research as well as over 10,000 acres of farm/forest land and 320,000 square feet of laboratory space. I plan on using this blog to highlight research accomplishments by CAFE faculty, staff and students.

My first feature is those researchers that published articles in top-tier research journals with impact factors above 10 and ranked either by impact factor* or total cites in the top five journals in their respective subject areas.
