The University of Minnesota established a Long-Term Agricultural Research Network in 2011 as a novel platform for research and education that emphasizes agricultural production through a unified network approach. The Minnesota Long-Term Agricultural Research Network (LTARN) is an outcome-based research, outreach, and education entity. Our primary focus is to help create agricultural production systems that provide a resilient, nimble, and efficient source of food, fiber, health, and biomaterials. However, we also recognize that agricultural production must be practiced in a responsible manner that is consistent with social, economic and environmental desires. Furthermore, we focus on results that are relevant to producers, consumers, policy makers, and business sectors.
