Speaker Profile #1
Dr. Dwayne L. Beck, Manager Dakota Lakes Research Farm in Pierre, South Dakota Dr. Beck was inducted into the South Dakota Hall of Fame in 2007 and was presented with the American Agricultural Editors Association Distinguished Service Award in 2008. He has spoken at numerous national and international meetings and is renowned not just for his research work, but also for his teaching skills and his unique approach to managing ecosystems used for producing food.
The Dakota Lakes Research Farm where he spends much of his time is owned by a not-for-profit corporation created by family farmers and local businesses in the 1980's. Full-time operations at the present site began in the fall of 1989. The entire facility has been managed using continuous low-disturbance no-till and diverse rotations exclusively since its inception.
The unique cooperative arrangement between South Dakota State University and the agricultural producer members of the corporation has resulted in substantial success. The primary impact was the development of programs that have allowed producers to adopt true continuous no-till techniques with diverse rotations in a large portion of central South Dakota and throughout the grassland ecosystems of North America. Identification of the extremely important role played by crop rotation in minimizing weed, disease, and insect problems while increasing potential profitability was the key contribution to this success. Principles developed at the Dakota Lakes Research Center have been successfully applied to many ecosystems around the world. The intellectual and fiscal contributions of the producer/owners of the Dakota Lakes Research Farm Corporation are the key to the successes achieved at this point. What has happened so far is only the beginning, Conservation Agriculture research and development continues and is expanding into new areas. Visit their website.
