The purpose of this episode is to dive into the dos and don'ts of conducting research trials on your own farm whether that is for hybrid selection, rate determination, product effectiveness, or machinery value. Laura Thompson, co-coordinator of the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network, joins the FarmBits podcast to discuss this important topic. For those of you who have been following along with all of the episodes of the FarmBits podcast, you may remember that Laura Thompson was a guest on the first podcast episode providing an overview of the importance of digital agriculture and the future of agriculture technology. Laura's experience with on-farm research and digital technologies in agriculture uniquely equip her to discuss how to properly conduct on farm research as well as how to leverage digital tools to execute research and measure research outcomes more effectively. While this is an important topic at any time of year, thoroughly considering on-farm research implementation prior to planting is a great first step toward gaining valuable insights for your operation this growing season.
