It's been more than 20 years since the state Legislature created the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute (AURI). The mission of AURI is to foster long-term economic benefit through increased business and employment opportunities to rural Minnesota through:

Research and development of innovative new uses or value improvements for Minnesota agricultural commodities and products;

Implementation of basic and applied research to support innovation, technology and growth of the agricultural industry; and

The development of renewable energy and biobased opportunities from Minnesota agricultural commodities and co-products.

At AURI, we are all about innovation, and agricultural innovation is critical to a strong economic future for our farmers and our world.

To better articulate our mission to a changing world, we've made some exciting changes to our logo and graphics. I encourage you to visit our website,, to see our new look and read more about some of the exciting projects and research we're doing.

AURI works with partners and clients across the state. In addition to the laboratories and offices here in Marshall, we also have facilities in Crookston and Waseca. We look forward to working side-by-side with businesses, commodity groups, farmers, and others to ensure a strong future for the state of Minnesota.
