On-Farm Research Program in MN: Yes or No?Published by on
The University of Minnesota is working with the Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council (AFREC) to determine the need and opportunities for on‐farm research in Minnesota. Your input is requested to determine if an on‐farm research program should go ahead, and if so, what it should look like.
The current proposal is to create two independent but closely aligned organizations. Both would support on‐farm trials using precision ag technology to apply treatments and collect yield data. One organization would focus on individual farmers improving their management by running trials for their operation and learning from peers. The other would focus on coordinating trials and aggregating data across the state.
Get more details on this proposal here, then share your thoughts by completing the survey at: z.umn.edu/onfarmsurvey. You can also submit your comments to Ann Lewandowski, firstname.lastname@example.org, 612‐624‐6765.
