Corn growers sought for on-farm research network
Corn growers can take an active role in a new on-farm research project sponsored by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in partnership with the Nebraska Corn Growers Association.
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.
The project includes three research comparison topics that growers can choose from one or more. They are: irrigation - water application management in corn production; nitrogen management in both irrigation and dryland corn production; and corn population study in irrigated and dryland fields. Replicated treatment comparisons will be done in growers’ fields, using their equipment.
UNL Extension educators, Keith Glewen and Gary Zoubek are leading the NOFRN with project partners Scott Merritt and Mat Habrock of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association.
