FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The director of the Northern Crops Institute at North Dakota State University is stepping down.
The Forum newspaper reports that Brian Sorenson will resign in early April to join Dakota Specialty Milling as director of milling operations.
Sorenson joined NCI in November 2000 as technical director and was named director about three years ago.
The institute is funded by the states of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota, as well as by commodity groups in those states and in Montana. It works to boost domestic and international markets for northern-grown crops.
