Plant Pathology Professor Awarded Grant to Study the Involvement of Blue Light in Plant Immunity
The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network is helping Nebraska farmers learn more about their fields and how they can improve productivity. Nebraska Extension educators work with farm operators to assess which projects should be evaluated and work together to discuss findings and improve practices. Topics for research include: optimal planting populations, including variable rate seeding approaches, nitrogen management using several new technologies, strip-tillage, evaluation of insect and disease control products and row spacing. Most research takes place on the farm with the grower’s equipment and practices. The network includes Nebraska Extension, Nebraska Corn Board, Nebraska Corn Growers Association and the Nebraska Soybean Board.
