Orange is the Answer
Improving lives in Oklahoma and beyond is our specialty at Oklahoma State University. We do this through accessible, innovative research that makes an impact through technology, health resources and drought management. And that's just the beginning.

Where can Oklahoma farmers turn to increase their yield?

Orange is the Answer.  Liuling Yan, the Dillon and Lois Hodges professor of wheat molecular genetics and breeding in OSU’s Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, announced a gene discovery in a wheat variety developed at Oklahoma State University could mean larger yields for wheat producers. This newly discovered missing link will enable wheat researchers to fine-tune crop maturity for a specific use: cattle grazing, grain-only or short-season wheat.

Where can we find innovative advances in weather tracking technology?

Orange is the Answer. Researchers from OSU’s Unmanned System Research Institute have designed the Tornado Intercept Aircraft (TIA), a drone that can fly directly into a storm, withstand the tempest and return with groundbreaking data. The TIA project is just one facet of the Tier 1 Drone Initiative’s exploration of how drones can address safety and environmental challenges. At OSU, we are committed to tackling society’s challenges head-on.

Where does the state turn to battle the opioid epidemic?

Orange is the Answer. The Hardesty Family Foundation donated $2 million to aid in research and clinical trials related to the National Center for Wellness and Recovery’s mission of addiction research and treatment. President Kayse Shrum said it best: "The generous gift from the Hardesty Family Foundation will allow OSU and NCWR to find personalized, evidence-based therapies for those struggling with addiction."

Where can we turn to protect our state's herds?

Orange is the Answer.  Oklahoma State University scientists have developed a screening tool for anaplasmosis in livestock, which has the potential to save producers a lot of time and money. “The cool thing about this diagnostic test is that it can test for the actual species and is more specific to how a veterinarian should care for the animals,” said Justin Talley, professor and OSU Extension livestock entomologist. “This test can differentiate between species of the Anaplasma genera, which allows treatment to be more precise.”
