LANGSTSON, Okla. (AP) — Langston University is to receive six grants totaling $1.8 million for agriculture-related research projects.

Republican U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas on Wednesday announced the grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The grants include helping the university establish a large animal testing center, improve goat management and education studies, improve undergraduate programs in biotechnology and horticulture and research the effects of brackish/saline water in goats, sheep and cattle.

The grants are provided through the USDA's 1890 Institution Teaching, Research, and Extension Capacity Building Grants program.
