On authority of the University's Board of Regents, granted February 14, 1907, 23 acres of land on the eastern slope of Mt. Rubidoux in Riverside were leased for an experiment station to conduct investigations in horticultural management, fertilization, irrigation, fruit handling, improvement of varieties, and related subjects. The laboratory remained at this location until 1917, when it was moved to a site on the western slope of the Box Springs Mountains.
