Corn, soybean growers share on-farm research

Corn and soybean growers are invited to attend the Nebraska Soybean and Feed Grains Profitability Project on-farm research update March 8 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead.

The 9 a.m.-3 p.m. program will be at the August N. Christenson Research and Education Building.

Producers will obtain valuable crop production-related information from on-farm research projects conducted on Nebraska farms by Nebraska farmers.

The Nebraska Soybean and Feed Grains Profitability Project is an on-farm research project designed to provide farm operators with an understanding of how to conduct crop research on their farms using their own machinery. Comparisons are scientifically designed, statistically analyzed and conducted for three years to assure reliable, useful information.

“Crop Insurance Decisions & Marketing Strategies” will be presented via interactive video conference by the luncheon speaker, Steve Johnson, Iowa State University Extension farm and ag business management specialist in central Iowa.

Johnson specializes in topics related to grain marketing, government farm programs, crop insurance and other risk management strategies.

He writes and trains on topics related to government farm programs, grain production contracts, farmland leasing and related crop income issues. He contributes to articles featured in a variety of farm magazines, websites, e-newsletters and other print and electronic media.

Registration is $50 for non-NSFGPP members. This includes a copy of the annual on-farm research report, refreshments and noon luncheon. Pre-registration is encouraged by March 3.

To register or for more information about the Nebraska Soybean and Feed Grains Profitability Project or how to conduct crop-related research on your farm, call (800) 529-8030 or visit the website.
