There’s still time to add an on-farm research component to your operation this year. Nebraska Extension educators can help design a project that yields reliable, field-tested data for your production decisions.
Research from Nebraska farmers and Midwest universities suggests seeding rates for soybeans can often be decreased without affecting yield. These decreases could save growers $10 an acre in seed costs.
The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network (NOFRN) has expanded the area where it is seeking 20 farmers to study how to optimize soybean yields. Here's more on the practices being studied and what's needed from the growers and the university researchers.

More than 70 farmer-led, on-farm research projects on products, practices, and new technologies impacting farm productivity and profitability will be featured at the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network meetings this February.
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.
