Welcome to the Red RiverValley Agricultural Research Center!
The Red RiverValleyAgriculturalResearchCenter consists of 6 units housed in 2 federal facilities in Fargo, ND and a federal worksite in E. Grand Forks, MN. The Animal Metabolism-Agricultural Chemicals, Insect Genetics & Biochemistry, and Plant Science Research Units form the Biosciences Research Laboratory. The Cereal Crops, Sugarbeet & Potato, and Sunflower Research Units form the Northern Crop Science Research Laboratory. The Wheat Quality Lab of the Cereal Crops Unit is housed in N. Dakota St. Univ. facilities. The Red River Valley Potato Research Worksite at E. Grand Forks is part of the Sugarbeet & Potato Research Unit.
To reduce the negative impact of foreign chemicals in food animals and food processing; improve effectiveness of insects used in IPM programs for control of pest insects and weeds; study physiology, genetics, and molecular biology of weeds to improve and/or discover management strategies; develop knowledge and germplasm to improve hard red spring & durum wheat, barley, and oat; improve quality and profitability of sugarbeet and potato production via research on germplasm enhancement, crop protection, and postharvest physiology; and develop knowledge and technology to benefit the sunflower industry.
