On-Farm research aims to develop protocols with extension and farmer input, in order to improve data research and recommendations.  This is accomplished using the technology that farmers already have and adapting to their field’s methods refined through years of research experience.  Statewide, we help farmers answer their questions on seeding rates, fertilizer use and other farming practices.  Knowledge gained helps our farmer cooperators directly and improves Purdue’s overall service to Indiana Agriculture.
