The history of the Herman Rosholt Research Farm goes back over 3 decades. A series of research trials have been completed over the years. The Farm was purchased by Pope SWCD in conjunction with Kandiyohi SWCD, and Stearns SWCD on May 27, 1968. The location is near Westport in Eastern Pope County. This location was chosen after a lengthy study was conducted by a Soil Scientist. It was determined that the 40 acres had the required uniform soil type, soil depth, level, topography, and adequate water for the irrigation research. Eventually Pope SWCD became the sole owner of the farm. The objective of the farm is to conduct soil and water research.
Over the history of the Rosholt Research farm several research studies have been conducted by the University of Minnesota Soils and Agronomy Extension, with the most recent being the hybrid poplar biomas study.
