Gyeongsangbuk-do: A leader in agricultural informatization.
We are the future of Korean agriculture. Welcome to our website.


My name is Kwak Young-ho, and I am the director of the Gyeongsangbuk-do
Agricultural Research & Extension Services (GBARES).

I offer my most sincere welcome and thank you for visiting our website.

Since 1908, GBARES has striven to distribute practical agricultural technologies to farmers in accordance with the constantly-evolving farming environment and the Green and White Revolutions of Korean agricultural history.

The farming industry (and farming village) is a major pillar of livelihood for Koreans. GBARES will continue to advance farming towards a better future for agriculture in Korea through the passing on of more professional skills for farmers, development of new cash crops in response to climate change, cultivation of new, more globally-competitive breeds, strengthening of joint international research endeavors, support for crop exports, and distribution of cutting-edge farming technologies in preparation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

We are committed to being the destination for your steady support.
We ask for your continued interest in and support for GBARES.
Thank you.
