SROC research and outreach programs span the spectrum from basic to applied and from agricultural production to human health. Our research focuses on improving food production systems while also investigating ways agriculture can help solve greater worldwide challenges.

Our faculty and staff collaborate on a variety of transdiciplinary projects. We study pieces of food production systems while always considering the efficiency and environmental impact of the system as a whole. Our goal is to find viable and innovative approaches to enhance the value of the rural landscape both now and in the future.
