Field Center for Sustainable Agriculture

This center was established in 2001, combining the Experimental Farm and the University Forest. The center has been reorganized into two divisions since 2021, aiming to continuously construct a new scientific field to solve the problems on sustainable agriculture and environment in the Hokuriku district.

Division of Rural Information and Planning

This division provides various educational programs and research projects on sustainable agriculture in Niigata and surrounding regions with the cooperation of other division of the center. Moreover, researchers in the Faculty of Agriculture and regional communities are networked to solve the problems on agriculture. Thus, this division works as a hub or a server of regional networks. Information and research databases in this division are available for all researchers.
