We work with farmers, rural leaders, faculty from throughout the University of Minnesota system, other professionals from industry and academia, and citizens to provide research and educational programming. Working with these many partners is our greatest strength. These partnerships keep us connected to the varied and changing needs of the producers and citizens of Minnesota.

Faculty and staff at the WCROC develop solutions to real-world challenges, and then share with local and global communities. Our primary research areas include agronomy and soil science; dairy; horticulture; renewable energy; and swine.
