Over 100 participants in 49 teams will be competing in this year's UNL-TAPS competitions for irrigated corn, irrigated sorghum, and Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI). Based on program success in the first three years, Oklahoma State University has started OSU-TAPS.
Growers achieving top efficiency and profitability in corn and sorghum production as part of the UNL TAPS Farm Management Competition in 2018 have been announced. Sign up for the next competition, which will include a subsurface drip irrigation division, is in March.
This free meeting series will focus on production issues and research updates specific to west-central Nebraska. Topics will include soil improvement, cover crops, nutrient management, weed identification, herbicide strategies, and crop marketing.
Nebraska Extension will be hosting a Crop Production Roadshow in west central Nebraska starting February 1. The six meetings will feature brief updates on production issues and research topics targeted to the region.
With the Testing Ag Performance Solutions Contest (TAPS) growers competed to see who could produce corn most profitably, efficiently, and with the highest yield. Learn what were the leading factors for success and what participants learned on this week's Market Journal.
Some growers in western Nebraska had their best winter wheat yields ever in 2017 while others had some of their lowest yields. Moisture availability and disease were among the factors. See breakdowns by area.
Learn from growers and researchers testing new ways to maintain or increase crop yields while saving water at the Water and Crops Field Day August 24 in North Platte. University researchers from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado as well as Nebraska will speak on water-efficient crop production.
