Forrest Izuno was appointed Head of the University of Minnesota’s Southern Research and Outreach Center (SROC) at Waseca in September 2001.
His interests include ensuring that the SROC will always be true to the University’s academic mission and that a strong relationship between the University and citizens of the state shall be maintained. A key focus of his leadership is the development of internal and external partnerships towards promoting multidisciplinary research and outreach for the purpose of enhancing the value of the rural landscape including: 1) alternative and added-value crops and cropping systems; 2) balancing primary values including food production, biomass production for renewable energy and fiber, plant-based chemopreventive agents and the environment; and 3) developing opportunities for sustainable social and economic vitality in rural areas.
