Mission: The dakota lakes research farm's primary goal is to identify, research, and demonstrate methods of strengthening and stabilizing the agriculture economy.
Programs: The dakota lakes research farm is a cooperative effort between south dakota state university and the dakota lakes research farm corporation, a not-for-profit corporation established by area farmers. This group owns the land, buildings, and other fixed assets. They work with the manager in prioritizing research projects and planning capital improvements. This past year a major project accomplishment was the construction of a energy efficient building. The reserach facility hosted a day two event to train certified agronomist and consultants on various agriculture techniques.
