Growers who conducted on-farm research will share results from the 2014 growing season at three meetings this February.
These studies were field-length, replicated treatment comparisons conducted by growers in their fields using their equipment that can offer valuable information for other producers. In 2014 more than 75 studies were conducted as part of the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network, a statewide on-farm research program addressing critical farmer production, profitability, and natural resource questions where growers take an active role in the research.
Data and information will be presented on these research topics:
- Cover crops
- Foliar fungicides
- Growth promoters
- Harvest methods
- Seed treatments
- Foliar micro nutrients
- Other nutrient studies
- Planting operations
- Corn population
- Soybean population
- Use of polymer
- Use of sugar
Preregistration is requested for meal planning. To register for any of the sites call (402) 624-8000 or email Christina Franklin at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate which site you plan to attend.
Approval has been sought for five Certified Crop Advisor CEU credits.
The programs are sponsored by Nebraska Extension in partnership with the Nebraska Corn Board, the Nebraska Soybean Board, and the Nebraska Corn Growers. Nebraska Extension is part of the UNL Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
