Learning from Farmers

Recent CropWatch articles have featured results from 2012 on-farm archive/-/asset_publisher/VHeSpfv0Agju/content/research:

 

Corn growers can take an active role in an on-farm archive/-/asset_publisher/VHeSpfv0Agju/content/research project sponsored by UNL Extension in partnership with the Nebraska Corn Growers Association and the Nebraska Corn Board.

The goal of the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network (NOFRN) is to implement a statewide on-farm archive/-/asset_publisher/VHeSpfv0Agju/content/research program addressing critical farm production, profitability, and natural resource questions. The project kicked off in 2012 with 40 on-farm comparisons conducted in 10 counties.

Growers interested in conducting on-farm archive/-/asset_publisher/VHeSpfv0Agju/content/research are encouraged to work with UNL faculty on one of the following topics related to corn production: 

  • irrigation management,
  • nitrogen management or
  • plant populations.

Replicated treatments will be planted and harvested in growers’ fields using their equipment.

Growers wanting to learn more about the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network and how to participate can contact UNL Extension at 402-624-8030 or 402-362-5508 or the Nebraska Corn Growers Association at 888-267-6479 or 402-438-6459.
