Research and outreach programs at NWROC focus on agricultural commodities and enterprises that are important to northwestern Minnesota's economy and culture. Our goal is to help producers maintain profitability in ways that are environmentally sound and help agriculture in the region thrive through the introduction and support of new products and management practices.
We work with local producers and businesses as well as other researchers to address the production problems common to and emerging in northwestern Minnesota and beyond. NWROC major research areas include small grains, sugar beets, wildlife management/biofuels, potatoes, remote sensing, and phosphorus.
