Nebraska On-Farm Research Network
On-Farm Research Network Working with producers to address critical production, profitability, and natural resources questions.
Farmers get bits of data, layers of data, in fact so much data it can be hard to interpret and use to make relevant farm management decisions. Read how faculty in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources are helping farmers understand and use all kinds of big data to aid management decisions.

Farm operators and agronomists from across the state are invited to hear about results from over 80 on-farm research projects at the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network update meetings this February. Projects cover products, practices, and new technologies that impact farm productivity and profitability.

Participants can view crop nitrogen sensors and high-clearance nitrogen equipment in action at Project SENSE update sessions at 5 sites this August.
If you've been thinking about incorporating an on-farm research study this year, the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network still has several opportunities.

(Sensors for Efficient Nitrogen Use and Stewardship of the Environment)
Project SENSE encourages adoption of in-season nitrogen (N) application for corn. This practice increases nitrogen use efficiency (NUE), and reduces nitrate loss to groundwater.
