Northwestern Illinois Agricultural Research and Demonstration Center

This 160-acre facility, established in 1980 near Monmouth in Warren County on soils that are primarily Argiudolls and Haplaquolls, is a very productive site in terms of both crop yield and data generation. Each year, about 50 different research projects are conducted by up to 12 campus-based project leaders and the center superintendent. Research areas include include soil chemistry and fertility, soil management, crop production, weed science, entomology, plant pathology, pest management, and environmental quality.
