Graves-Chapple Research Center

Located near Rock Port at the toe slope of the loess hills, this Center’s mission is to provide research and teaching in the specific soil and climatic conditions of extreme northwest Missouri. This occurs through research and demonstrations of conservation tillage and soil conservation management practices, turf and forage, and crop production practices. Soil conservation and water quality issues also are addressed.
