Videos: 2020 research projects at the NWROC

COVID-19 = Monkey wrench

COVID-19 threw a monkey wrench into the gears of the annual Northwest Research & Outreach Center's (NWROC) Crops & Soils Day program.  Rather than risk having this day meant for education and networking become some sort of COVID-19 super-spreader event, Extension and College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) personnel and the NWROC's director Dr. Albert Sims decided to bring the program online.

Short videos summarizing research projects

CFANS and Extension faculty members from both the NWROC and the St. Paul campus were captured on video discussing some of their 2020 research projects, what they hope to learn and how the projects will provide value to crop producers in northwest Minnesota and beyond.
