High Value Crop Production

High Value Crops Research Website

High-value crop production helps diversify farming operations and increase net returns. Many growers are experimenting with new crops that require irrigation as well as more traditional crops that can be profitably grown under irrigation. Research trials have been conducted to help growers address production issues encountered and to demonstrate profitable yet sustainable production practices.

Program goals and initiatives include: 1) continuing grape research, including identifying winter hardy grapes adapted to North Dakota; 2) continuing Juneberry research, including selection and introduction of superior native cultivars to North Dakota; and 3) continuing to work on pest management issues, primarily weed control, for most small fruit and vegetable crops.
