CERZOS is also equipped with a library specialized in agricultural sciences which belongs to the Department of Agronomy of UNS. It includes high-impact-factor journals as well as resources to give access to information to the community of students, researchers and teaching staff from both CERZOS and the Department of Agronomy. Publications from scientific sources, such as the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation in Agriculture (IICA) and the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA), among others, are also available at the library.

 

 

 

CERZOS is also equipped with a hydro-meteorological station network, eight of which are from CERZOS and four are shared with UNS. Apart from these eight stations, the network contains three limnigraphs that are used to calculate water level and flow. In addition, CERZOS collaborates monintoring, collecting and analyzing data from 30 meteorological private stations.
