Nebraska On-Farm Research Network Publishes Results and Videos of 2020 Farmer-Conducted Research Online

Farmers participating in the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network conducted nearly 90 on-farm research studies in 2020, covering a wide range of topics. Practices such as cover crops, row spacing, planting population, starter fertilizer and more were evaluated, as well as technologies such as drones, sensors, and models for nitrogen management and variable-rate seeding technology.

You can access these research results and benefit from the research conducted by farmers across the state by downloading a PDF copy of the 2020 on-farm research results. New this year, the online results book features enhanced content such as links to short videos about selected studies.

New Online ‘Farm Stat’ Tool Allows Farmers and Agronomists to Easily Analyze Data from Their Own On-Farm Research


A new tool, Farm Stat, is available on the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network website. Farm Stat enables growers and agronomists to easily run statistical analysis of their own research studies.

Farm Stat is accessed online and allows producers or agronomists to specify how many treatments and replications their unique study had and then enter their yield data or other data to be statistically analyzed. The program will quickly produce a complete statistical analysis of variance that can be saved as a PDF.

The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network Farm Stat is available through a free registration on CropWatch.
