Corn and soybean growers are invited to attend the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network (NOFRN) research update program on March 10, 2014 at UNL's Agricultural Research and Development Center (ARDC) near Mead and on March 11, 2014 at the UNL Extension office in York, NE.
Producers will obtain valuable crop production-related information from on-farm research projects conducted on Nebraska farms by Nebraska farmers in partnership with University of Nebraska faculty.
The goal of the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network (NOFRN) is to implement a statewide on-farm research program addressing critical farmer production, profitability and natural resources questions.
Growers take an active role in the on-farm research project sponsored by University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension in partnership with the Nebraska Corn Growers Association and the Nebraska Corn Board.
he February program will provide an opportunity to hear growers who conducted on-farm research share their results from the 2013 growing season. Field length replicated treatment comparisons were completed in growers' fields, using their equipment.
Preregistration is requested by calling 402-624-8030.
