The station is located in gmina Pszczółki (Pomorskie voivodeship) in the Kaszuby Lakeland (at the confluence of 3 mesoregions: Starogard Lakeland, Żulawy Wiślane and Kashubian Lakeland). The terrain is corrugated with small slopes and locally deep valleys.

The quality of agricultural production space in the area of Żelisławki is quite favourable for agricultural production. The research indicates that the station operates in an area with quite high frequency of droughts and definitely negative water balance during the growing season. Arable soils occupy 95% of the agricultural land with a significant mosaic of soil cover, dominated by leached and acidic brown soils. The soils of good wheat and very good rye complexes (mainly class IIIb and IVa) prevail.

Żelisławki is an inventorless farm with a one-way focus on grain production. In recent years, the share of cereals in the gross value of commodity production was 58% on average. Cereals cover about 70% of the sowing structure. Winter wheat, winter triticale and spring barley, as well as winter rapeseed and sugar beet are mainly cultivated. In recent years the yield of cereal grain was at the level of 6.6 t∙ha-1, and the yield of sugar beet roots was on average 78 t∙ha-1. The level of mineral fertilization was on average 260 kg NPK∙ha-1 AL. 

Apart from the production activity, AES Wierzbno carries out organizational and economic research and works related to the evaluation of plant production technology (winter rye, winter triticale) as well as analyses of the economic activity of the entire station. It also carries out works within the framework of agricultural drought monitoring and the LCAgri project (3 implementation of low emission practices).
