Area 4 Soil Conservation Districts of North Dakota support a collaborative effort with the Northern Great Plains Research Laboratory to provide land to research conservation tillage and cropping systems on farmer-sized fields on a long-term basis.

Through this relationship significant conservation research has been accomplished that has supported major changes in agricultural production systems throughout the region.

Research Farm Objectives and Goals:

  • Conserve soil and water resources.

  • Study conservation tillage systems.

  • Improve water conservation and soil erosion control technology.

  • Research on field-sized plots.

  • Identify research needs through the advisory committee and agricultural community.

  • Promote the adoption and use of research findings.

  • Present information in layman's terms.
