Laura Thompson, 402-624-8030 , laura.thompson@unl.edu
Farm operators and agronomists from across the state are invited to attend the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network research update program at a location near them. 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. These research projects cover products, practices, and new technologies that impact farm productivity and profitability.
Locations and times for 2018 include: Feb. 19 at the Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center (formerly the Agricultural Research and Development Center) near Mead; Feb. 20 at the Lifelong Learning Center, Northeast Community College, Norfolk; and Feb. 21 at the Hall County Ext. Office, College Park Campus, Grand Island.
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, the Nebraska Soybean Board, and the Nebraska Dry Bean Commission.
These February programs will provide an opportunity to hear growers who conducted on-farm research share their results from the 2017 growing season. Field length replicated treatment comparisons were completed in growers’ fields, using their equipment.
Certified Crop Advisor Credits are applied for and pending upon approval.
Preregistration is requested for meal planning purposes. Call (402)624-8030 or e-mail onfarm@unl.edu to register for any of the five sites. To learn more about the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network and how to participate, visit http://cropwatch.unl.edu/farmresearch.
