Outreach Programs

For the Agriculture Industry

Each growing season our researchers hold field days for interested participants to come to our center to see and learn about research trials and directly interact with researchers. We share research results at winter meetings that bring farmers, crop consultants, public agents, and researchers together.

For Horticulture Enthusiasts

Every spring, we host a Horticulture Day program that engages participants with a range of topics ranging from vegetable gardening to soil health to landscape design. Our speakers come from both research and industry backgrounds to share their expertise.

For Students

In collaboration with University of Minnesota Extension, we host Elementary Field Day, a program that engages area 4th graders with agriculture, and University on the Prairie, a summer camp that engages junior high and high school students with science topics.
