Lincoln, Neb. —New for the 2020 growing season, Nebraska Extension presents “Streaming On-Farm Research,” a series of short live webinars for farmers and ag professionals.
These webinars will occur weekly, on Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. Sessions will be 30 minutes, featuring 15 minutes of presentation, and 15 minutes of Q&A. Each presentation will cover recent on-farm research data on topics relevant to current growing season activities.
“During the past growing season, Nebraska farmers worked with Extension faculty to complete over 100 on-farm research studies on relevant agronomic topics,” said Laura Thompson, Nebraska Extension educator. “These live online sessions are a great way to benefit from the data and information these farmers have generated.”
The first four sessions feature topics of soybean planting date, soybean seeding rate, starter fertilizer use in corn, interseeding cover crops, and opportunities with precision ag technologies. The schedule for the first four weeks is as follows:
- April 14: "Soybean Yield Benchmarking: The Impact of Planting Date, Seeding Rate, and Fungicide and Insecticide Applications"
- April 21: "Starter Fertilizer for Corn"
- April 28: "Interseeding Cover Crops in Corn: Key Considerations for Success"
- May 5: "Using Precision Ag Technologies to Implement Seeding Rate and Nitrogen Rate On-Farm Research Studies On-the-go"
The live webinars are free and open to all and may be accessed using either Facebook or Zoom.
