This center was founded in April 2003 by unifying the former University Farm and the University Forest. The objective of the center is to contribute to the local area as well as the international community through the promotion of academic and cooperative research related to Field Science. Field Science is made up of the two divisions outlined below.
The Nankoku Field (University Farm) and the Reihoku Field (University Forest) are expected to be used more and more as places of education and research for sustainable subtropical agriculture and forestry management based on environmental awareness which contributes to both the local and international communities.
Sustainable Subtropical Agriculture Division :
We are concerned with practical education research, technical development, and technical aid primarily at the Nankoku Field on the Monobe Campus.
Forestry Management and Environment Division :
We are primarily involved with practical education research, and technical aid and development at the Reihoku Field which is located south of the Shikoku Mountain Range.
