The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network's Annual Results Updates are this February! Come hear from growers who conducted on-farm research as they share their results from the 2016 growing season. You will obtain valuable crop production-related information from over 70 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.

Research projects to be discussed will include: cover crops, variable rate seeding, planting populations, multi-hybrid planting, starter fertilizer, fungicide applications, alternate crop rotations, multi-hybrid planting uses, seed treatments (including treatment for Sudden Death Syndrome), and sidedress nitrogen management technologies including commercially available models and Project SENSE which uses crop canopy sensors for in-season, variable-rate nitrogen management.

Approval has been sought for Certified Crop Adviser CEU credits and is pending approval. Attendees will receive a complementary copy of the 2016 growing season results book.

We hope to see you there!
