The station is located in gmina Gręboszów (Małopolskie voivodeship, Poland), in the Sandomierz Basin, at the junction of three agricultural and climatic districts: Częstochowsko-Kielecka, Tarnowska and Sandomiersko-Rzeszowska. The relief is flat, the agricultural land is located in the Vistula Valley.

The quality of agricultural production space in the area of Borusowa is good, with quite favourable climatic conditions. The soil cover is made up of muds, mainly medium ones with different thickness. Their disadvantage is the tendency to catchment and crust formation. Approximately 20% of agricultural land is exposed to soaking up and seasonal flooding of the Vistula River. Arable land (92%) of very good and good quality (classes I, II, IIIa) prevails among agricultural land. 

The farm conducts production activities of plant production profile. The main crops are cereals (winter wheat, spring barley), sugar beet and winter rapeseed. The percentage of cereals in the sowing structure is about 60%. Mineral fertilization is at the level of about 280 kg NPK∙ha-1 AL, and the yields of wheat grain reach on average over 6 t∙ha-1, while the yields of sugar beet roots – 65 t∙ha-1. In recent years, the average percentage of sugar beet in the value of gross commodity production was 38%, and of cereals – 35%. 

The plant carries out organizational and economic research and works related to the evaluation of plant production technology (sugar beet, winter wheat, spring barley) and economic analyses of economic activity. Moreover, works are carried out within the framework of agricultural drought monitoring and the LCAgri project (5 implementations of low emission practices).
