On-farm research can provide a great avenue to accelerate learning about topics that impact farm productivity and profitability. It is research that you do on your field, using your equipment, and with your production practices. This means the research is directly applicable to your operation. The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network approaches topics that are critical to farmer productivity, profitability, and sustainability. These topics include nutrient management, pest control, irrigation strategies, conservation programs, new technologies, soil amendments, cultural practices, and hybrid and variety selection. Research comparisons are identified and designed to answer producers’ production questions. Projects’ protocols are developed first and foremost to meet individual cooperator needs. Multiple year comparisons are encouraged.
Support from the Nebraska Corn Board, Nebraska Corn Growers Association, Nebraska Soybean Board, and Nebraska Dry Bean Commission makes this research, publication, and update meetings possible.
