Resum


Barcelonas Experimental Farm was the agronomic center of reference
of Barcelonas regions between 1853 and 1911. In addition to its educational function,
it was an experimental center where many of the new features that agronomic
science was developing in Europe were tested, emphasizing among others the
studies on the performance of fodders, cereals, tobacco, beet and other vegetables,
as well as the diffusion of new technologies. It was one of the first state institutions
organizing a meteorological station (1863) and collecting climatic data in a systematic
way.
