The North Atlantic Area wishes to express its support for the U. S. troops in Iraq.
You are entering the North Atlantic Area (NAA), a region of weathered mountains, rolling hills, lakes, rivers, and cities. We have research locations and worksites in seven states in the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic United States: Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and West Virginia. Researchers here are helping to improve agriculture in many ways, such as fish production and nutrition, human nutrition and aging, fruits and berries, vegetables, textiles, dairy products, leather, and more. Safety, production, quality, nutritional value, and economic value are some of the impacts of our research.
Our scientists have helped develop: milk additives for those who are lactose-intolerant, new varieties of apples, blueberries and raspberries, low-fat cheeses and dairy treats and new methods of color-fast textile dyeing. Many of our accomplishments have been behind the scenes in the area of food safety research.
