Corn and Soybean Growers to Share On-Farm Research

Results from 2007 will be heard March 11.

Corn and soybean growers who attend the Nebraska Soybean and Feed Grains Profitability Project on-farm research update March 11 will learn about 2007 research results.

The 9 a.m.-3 p.m. program will be at UNL Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead.

Producers will obtain crop production-related information from on-farm research projects conducted on Nebraska farms by Nebraska farmers, says Keith Glewen, UNL Extension educator.

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.

The luncheon speaker, Jim Goeke, UNL Extension hydrologist at the West Central Research and Extension Center at North Platte, will present "Dynamics of Water Resources in East Central Nebraska - Past, Present, Future."

Registration is $30 for non-NSFGPP members and includes a copy of the annual on-farm research report, refreshments and noon luncheon.

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 Web at
