The mission of the NDSU LREC is to enhance the quality of life for all North Dakota citizens with a responsive, flexible and accessible agricultural based research program that combines the concepts of agricultural research, university Extension, information technology and economic and community development.

LREC research priorities reflect the greatest need for the regions producers. The agronomic research program conducts tests on all crops grown in ND, but focuses more directly on HRSW, winter wheat, canola, flax, soybeans, dry edible beans, faba beans, hemp and other crops that dominate acreage in the region. A second major research program includes crop protection with an emphasis on overall disease management of all ND crops. An active Foundation Seed Stocks increase program and support for main station cropping research activities round out the stations activities.
