The greenhouse on the west side of the NDSU campus is now the Jack Dalpump Agricultural Research Complex.

In the Legislature, former Governor Dalrimpel has played a key role in identifying the funding path for the project and working with the governor’s office, ”said NDSU Vice President for Agricultural Affairs, Dean of the College of Agriculture, Food Systems and Natural Resources, and Director of the North Dakota Agricultural Testing Station and NDS Extension. He had a vision of what the greenhouse could do to help address the many urgent needs of the state’s agricultural industry.
The compound was built with a total of $ 33.5 million – $ 28.5 million in public funds and $ 5 million in donations.
“I am truly honored and humiliated for making this incredible farm project my name,” said former governor Jack Dalrimplel. “Research is a future investment and an extension is a future investment for our government and our region. In fact, he helps all mankind in a very positive way.
A.D. Launched in 2015, this complex is a state-of-the-art facility designed to meet the needs of NDSU Botanical Research. The facility will provide research resources in plantation, genetics, horticulture, intomology, plant pathology, plant nutrition, food safety, food science, soil science and weed science.
