The facility will help meet the needs of the seed industry.

The North Dakota Crop Improvement and Seed Association (NDCISA) has donated $25,000 to North Dakota State University’s North Central Research Extension Center (NCREC) near Minot for a new seed-conditioning facility.

“This facility is a long-term investment in North Dakota’s agriculture producers and we thank the NDCISA for their donation,” says Shana Forster, NCREC director. “Once built it will help us meet the current and future needs of the seed industry and serve our clients’ needs.”

In the 2015-2017 legislative session, the N.D. Legislature granted $750,000 to the NCREC for the new facility, with permission to raise funds for an additional $1.5 million to contribute to the project. The State Board of Higher Education approved these numbers.

An active fundraising campaign is ongoing through the NDSU Foundation and Alumni Association.

Groundbreaking on the project is expected sometime this year.
