ETH Zurich runs various agricultural research stations as part of its research and educational activities.
Agrovet-Strickhof is a cooperation between ETH Zurich, the University of Zurich and Strickhof, the agricultural competence center of the Canton of Zurich. Using an holistic "From feed to food" approach, questions from livestock science and animal health are addressed in an interdisciplinary and practical way. Agrovet-Strickhof extends to the four operating sites Lindau (ZH), Wüflingen (ZH), Früebüel (Walchwil ZG) and Alp Weissenstein (Bergün GR). The four sites complement each other optimally as they are located at different altitudes.
Several new buildings with advanced research infrastructures are being built at the main location in Lindau (ZH). They will come into operation during 2017.
The ETH research station for Plant Sciences in Eschikon Lindau belongs to the Institute of Agricultural Sciences (IAS). It offers users the opportunity to conduct experiments in modern greenhouses, climate chambers and out in the field.
