The Testing Ag Performance Solutions (TAPS) program is looking for participants for the 2021 competition as it tailors the upcoming season to accommodate new technologies, methods and practices in farm management.
In a stark contrast to 2019, this year’s growing season was drastically drier which meant that participants in the Testing Ag Performance Solutions (TAPS) program had to focus more attention on their irrigation and nitrogen management decisions this year.
The UNL West Central Research, Extension and Education Center recently held their annual Water and Crops Field Day virtually. If you were unable to attend or would like to catch some of the other presentations from the day, all of the presentations are now available online.
Even though the Annual Water & Crops Field Day can’t be hosted at UNL’s West Central Research, Extension & Education Center as in the past years, the event will go on as a virtual event as most others have lately due to COVID-19.
Even in these uncertain times with COVID-19 the TAPS competitions, like many other farming operations, has moved forward with their 2020 planting. Participants had to make the crucial decisions for hybrid and seeding rate to use in the competition by April 10th.
