SBARE seeks input

Input from the public will help shape SBARE’s recommendations for the 2025 legislative session.

The North Dakota State Board of Agricultural Research and Education (SBARE) is seeking public input on needs in the state.

SBARE provides the North Dakota legislature and governor with recommendations on how the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station and North Dakota State University Extension can address critical state needs and ensure that the state’s investments on behalf of North Dakota citizens will yield great long-term dividends.

The input will help shape SBARE’s recommendations for the 2025 legislative session.

“You have a vital stake in North Dakota’s future and are invited to provide your thoughts on critical needs and concepts for solutions,” says Sarah Lovas, SBARE chair. “Specifically, we ask you to provide your input in a format that works best for you.”

SBARE is holding three input sessions:

  • September 14 - North Central Research Extension Center, 5400 Highway 83 S, Minot
  • November 9 - Dickinson Research Extension Center, 1041 State Ave., Dickinson
  • December 12-13 - NDSU Harry D. McGovern Alumni Center, 1241 N. University Dr, Fargo

To set up a time to present 10 to 15 minutes of testimony at an input session, contact Erin McCall at 701-231-7656 or erin.mccall@ndsu.edu. Stakeholders are encouraged to provide input at an earlier session to ensure availability.

Other options are:

  • Provide written testimony - Send a letter to SBARE, NDSU Dept. 7520, PO Box 6050, Fargo, ND 58108-6050
  • Provide testimony by email - Send an email message to sbare@ndsu.edu
  • Provide an online submission - Submit testimony online at ndsu.edu/vpag/sbare/stakeholder_input/

In your remarks, describe your agricultural research and/or Extension needs and potential solutions.
