Phu Ruea District is an ideal location for growing exotic flora such as African violets, hydrangeas, petunias and phlox due to its cool and dry climate pattern which is hardly seen in any other northeastern province.
 
The staff of the Research Station works with local farmers to promote new cash crops such as macadamia, strawberries, passion fruit, potted and table plants and cut flowers.
 
In addition, the station is responsible for plant species research of species such as peaches, Chinese chestnuts, grapes, Chinese pears, macadamia nuts, strawberries, etc. The station also produces plant seeds, publicizes technology, and provides training for local farmers and concerned parties.
 
The station is not merely a research center for educational purposes, but is also the hub for the exchange of technological knowledge and real-life experiences (local wisdom).
 
Other responsibilities of the station include oversight of a wild-life sanctuary and welcoming visitors who come to appreciate the beauty of its ideal location and its activities.
 
Tourist facilities include toilets, accommodations, food and beverages. Lectures complete with a demonstration of flower gardening and ornamental plant plantations are also provided. Advance booking is recommended (at least 3 weeks).
