NE Extension Seeks Farmers for Soybean Benchmarking Study

NE Extension Seeks Farmers for Soybean Benchmarking Study

The Nebraska On Farm Research Network is seeking farmers in eastern Nebraska to participate in a soybean bench-marking study this year, focusing on planting date and population and the use of fungicide and insecticides. This is a continuation of research from the last few years. NE Extension Educator Aaron Nygren led a short webinar last week summarizing 2019 research on these factors.

If you would be interested in doing some on-farm research including these factors, Nygren says they will help with setting up the study, doing soil samples, and analyzing the data. There’s also an optional study to examine fungicide and insecticide use independently. Contact Nygren in the Colfax County Extension office if you are interested.  The phone number is (402) 352-3821 or email Nygren at anygren2@unl.edu.
