Interactive on-farm research guide now available PDF Print E-mail

An interactive, online magazine now provides comprehensive information for those considering on-farm research. The “Grower’s Guide to On-Farm Research” at go.unl.edu/2014onfarmzmag was developed as a tool to be used in conjunction with the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network.
NOFRN is sponsored by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in partnership with the Nebraska Corn Growers Association and the Nebraska Corn Board. The goal of the network is to put into effect a statewide, on-farm research program addressing critical farmer production, profitability and natural resources questions.
The guide provides a comprehensive overview of what growers can expect by participating in on-farm research.
Some of the current research includes irrigation, nitrogen management in corn production, corn population and cover crops.
Jenny Rees, UNL Extension educator, said the on-farm research grower’s guide is interactive on computers, tablets and mobile phones whether Apple or Android.
