Outside view of Bergland Laboratory

The Bergland Laboratory is actually the result of a collaborative effort among UMN Crookston, the Northwest Research and Outreach Center (NWROC), and the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute (AURI). The building serves as a center for teaching, for applied student lab experiences, and for research in the agronomic, botanical, and horticultural sciences. The facility of approximately 17,500 square feet is linked to Owen Hall and the Agricultural Research Center via enclosed walkways and provides space and equipment for teaching and research. 

Spaces provided within the facility include: environmentally controlled areas for commercial plant production; growth chambers; laboratories for chemical treatment of plants and studies in tissue culture, plant nutrition, plant pathology and photoperiodism; preparation and work areas; and storage.
