Help Us Identify Yield-Limiting Factors in Nebraska Soybean Fields October 5, 2016

Nebraska soybean producers are being asked to answer a survey about their soybean fields and contribute to a benchmark study of current soybean production in Nebraska. Researchers from 10 north central states, including Nebraska, are collecting the data to identify factors that may be impeding growers from reaching full yield. See what they've learned in the first two years of the study and how they hope to use the information.

Replacing Summer Fallow with Grain-type Field Peas: New Markets, New Opportunities July 14, 2016

University researchers from Nebraska, Colorado, and Kansas are conducting studies in the western High Plains to learn how field peas can be integrated into rotations, replacing fallow. Grain-type field pea is a spring-planted cool-season crop that is now grown on almost 100,000 acres in west central and western Nebraska.

Replacing Summer Fallow with Grain-Type Field Peas: Planting Population March 8, 2016

Field Peas – Pros and Cons

Grain-type field pea is a spring-planted cool season crop that can be grown as an alternative for summer fallow in semiarid cereal-based, no-till cropping systems where wheat-corn-fallow and/or wheat-fallow are the main rotation strategies (Figure 1). Reasons for replacing summer fallow with field pea include:
