At A. Wilbert's Sons, we feel it is imperative to support research that aims to address topics that are important to our core businesses.

We are extremely proud to sponsor the A. Wilbert's Sons Professorship in Agriculture and Renewable Natural Resources at Louisiana State University. The recipients of this professorship have demonstrated excellence in their respective agricultural fields.
