The station is located in gmina Przyłęk (Mazowieckie voivodeship, Poland), within Radom Plain and in close vicinity to Kozienicka Plain. The terrain is flat. It has quite high variability of soil cover; the arable land consists of mostly medium podzolic soils (ca. 70%) that are included in good wheat and rye complexes (classes IIIa, IIIb, IV). Arable land occupies 72% of the arable land, while the rest of the AL are medium quality meadows and pastures. Soils of permanent grasslands belong to the type of black degraded and mucky soils. Agro-meteorological conditions are close to optimal with drought periods.

The plant conducts its production in organic and conventional system. The main activities are field experimentation and breeding of dairy cattle. Milk production exceeds 9 200 l per year per cow. The plant production is focused on securing the fodder needs of dairy cattle and obtaining seed and consumption grains. The percentage of cereals in the sowing is about 50%, and grain yields reach on average 5.1 t∙ha-1 (including winter wheat 6.1 t∙ha-1). The level of mineral fertilization is quite low (about 170 kg NPK∙ha-1 AL), mainly due to the significant share of crop production in the organic system. On the basis of the results of recent years, it can be concluded that the station conducts 2 directions of activities, as the share of animal production (dairy cattle breeding) in the value of gross commodity production was 41%, while experimental activity was 45%.

Apart from field experimentation, an important element is organizational and economic research and works related to the evaluation of plant production technology (winter wheat, winter triticale, spring barley), as well as financial analyses of the economic activity of the entire station. In addition, work is carried out within the framework of agricultural drought monitoring and the LCAgri project (4 low emission practices implementation).
