The Red River Valley Agricultural Research Center conducts research that covers the effects of foreign chemicals in animals, explores new methods to control perennial weed and insect pests, tests wheat and oats to enhance quality, and improves the storage characteristics of potatoes and sugarbeets. Additionally, scientists at the Center develop improved germplasm for wheat, barley, sugarbeets, and sunflower. To successfully complete our mission we actively seek partners to collaborate on research activities. Currently the Center has numerous cooperative research programs with staff at North Dakota State University, the University of Minnesota, and numerous other land grant universities across the United States. We also partner with numerous federal and state government agencies, farm commodity organizations, and agribusinesses. These numerous partnerships add exceptional value to our research programs and increase our capacity to solve problems of importance to the United States consumer.
