Learn from Other Growers' On-Farm Research March 10, 11

Nebraska growers participating in the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network will share results from their 2013 trials at the On-farm Research Updates.

Growers gain valuable information from conducting field-length, replicated treatment comparisons in their own fields using their equipment, said UNL Extension Educator Keith Glewen.  These updates allow other growers to learn from their experiences, both good and bad, before making major changes in their farming practices.

The March 10 program will be at UNL's ARDC near Mead and the March 11 update will be in York at the York County Fairgrounds 4-H Building. Both will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The March 10 session also can be viewed live at the Phelps County Extension office or online that day at: http://go.unl.edu/2014onfarmupdate.

The luncheon speaker will be Joe Luck, extension precision agriculture engineer. Luck has nearly 15 years of experience working with hardware and software systems for precision agriculture crop production. He will be discussing techniques for collecting and analyzing data from these technologies for improving management decisions at the farm level experience.

The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network (NOFRN) is a statewide on-farm research program addressing critical farmer production, profitability and natural resources questions where growers take an active role in the research.
