About the Center

The 5,000-acre center is located in Rosemount, Minn. The mostly agricultural terrain provides a land-based research site for about 40 to 45 faculty and their students each year, primarily from the university's College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences.


The center supports research that enhances the quality of agricultural production, human health, renewable energy and the environment, and to disseminate the benefits of this research to the public.
