Farm operators and agronomists from across the state are invited to attend the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network research results update meeting at a location near them.

Farm producers will obtain crop production-related information from more than 80 on-farm research projects conducted on Nebraska farms by farmers in partnership with University of Nebraska faculty. These research projects cover products, practices, and new technologies that affect productivity and profitability.

The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network addresses farm production, profitability and natural resources questions.

Growers take an active role in the on-farm research project sponsored by Nebraska Extension in partnership with the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, the Nebraska Corn Board, the Nebraska Soybean checkoff, and the Nebraska Dry Bean Commission.

These programs will provide an opportunity to hear growers who conducted on-farm research share results from the 2017 growing season.

Field length replicated treatment comparisons were completed in growers’ fields, using their equipment.

Research projects will include cover crops, variable rate seeding, planting populations, multi-hybrid planting, starter fertilizer, fungicide applications, alternate crop rotations, multi-hybrid planting uses, seed treatments, and sidedress nitrogen management technologies including drone and sensor based management, variable-rate nitrogen management.

Certified Crop Advisor Credits are applied for and pending upon approval.
