Area Growers Conduct Crop Tests

Seven area growers allowed the University of Missouri Extension Service to conduct strip trials on their farms in 2015. The focus of these trials was phosphorus, nitrogen timing, cover crop comparisons and cover crop termination studies.

This year, we hope to continue the work with these growers and are seeking to add additional strip trials.  The trials will be focused in the Holt, Atchison, Nodaway, Buchanan, Andrew, Clinton and DeKalb counties.

These tests are replicated strip tests using grower’s equipment and harvested using yield monitors to record yield data. The trials are field length plots. The Extension regional agronomist will coordinate trials with growers.

If you are interested in participating, please call Wayne Flanary, Regional Agronomist, University of Missouri Extension at 660-446-3724.
