Approximately 600 to 900 acres of prime agricultural land at the Rosemount Research and Outreach Center are dedicated to support research. The programs are carried annually by University of Minnesota faculty on soybeans, potatoes, small grains, soil fertility, forages, vegetable production, plant pest management, carbon sequestration, turf grass, ornamental plants, turkeys, honey bees and beef cattle.
In addition to crops and livestock research, research on recreational trails and trees is also underway.
RROC staff members provide research support for the faculty including such tasks as tillage, planting, treatment applications, harvesting and livestock management and health care. If you're interested in conducting research at the site, please fill out this form. University faculty and staff will be charged a modest research fee to reserve research facilities and arrange for technical assistance as needed.
