Facilities

Northern Crops Institute (NCI) is located on the campus of North Dakota State University. The unique facility is equipped to bring together customers, commodity traders, technical experts, processors and producers from all the world for discussion, education, and technical service programs. Our spacious Lobby welcomes visitors with an array of international flags and displays of regional crops and processed products. Our 38-seat Auditorium has simultaneous translation capabilities in two languages. The Conference Room seats 12 people and is the site of many trade team and regional meetings. The Main Facility is a wireless, smoke-free environment. Laboratories are equipped for baking, pasta processing, twin-screw extrusion, grain grading, and commodity and product analyses. The pilot-sized Swing Mill and the Feed Production Center enhance the NCI staff's ability to demonstrate the varied uses of northern grown crops.
