SDSU Dakota Lakes Research Station

Dakota Lakes Research Station

Join us for the 2019 Dakota Lakes Research Farm Field Day on June 27!

The Dakota Lakes Research Station focuses on both irrigated and dryland crop research. The Dakota Lakes Research Station is managed as a no-till farm. 240 of the 840 acres are devoted to irrigation. Irrigation allows scientists to compare and evaluate varieties, as well as comparing and evaluating management practices. It also allows scientists to do breeding work in both high- and low-moisture environments at the same location in the same year. The station’s field day, held the last Thursday in June, has been listed as one of the, “10 most exciting field days in the nation” by a major farm magazine.
