The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network is a statewide, on-farm research program that addresses critical farmer production, profitability and natural resources questions. Growers take an active role in the on-farm research project sponsored by Nebraska Extension in partnership with the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, the Nebraska Corn Board and the Nebraska Soybean Board.
These February programs will provide an opportunity to hear growers who conducted on-farm research share their results from the 2014 growing season. Field length replicated treatment comparisons were completed in growers’ fields, using their equipment.
Five Certified Crop Advisor Credits are applied for and pending upon approval.
Preregistration is requested for meal planning purposes. Call (402)624-8000 or e-mail [email protected] to register for any of the three sites. To learn more about the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network and how to participate, visit http://cropwatch.unl.edu/farmresearch.
