2017 On-Farm Research Results Now Online March 22, 2018
Last month, farmers and crop consultants from across the state attended the Nebraska On-Farm Research Results Update meetings. At these meetings, farmers who conducted on-farm research studies in 2017 shared the results of their research projects.
In total, over 80 on-farm research studies were completed, covering a wide range of topics from cover crops, to row spacing, planting population, starter fertilizer, and more. New technologies such as multi-hybrid planters and sensors for nitrogen management were also discussed. Attendees of the research meetings noted they appreciated having a source of unbiased research, the variety of topics, and the opportunity for interaction with other farmers and educators.
If you missed these meetings, you can still benefit from the research conducted by farmers across the state by downloading a PDF copy of the On-Farm Research 2017 Growing Season Results.
