Field Assessments To Improve Efficiency Workshops
Nebraska Extension in Fillmore County announces that Geneva will be a host site for a new initiative that seeks to enhance the knowledge of Nebraska corn, soybean and wheat producers on their sustainability and operational efficiency measures. Participating farmers will use a new web based tool called the Fieldprint® Calculator. Calculating "Fieldprints" can help growers to establish benchmark data on a field and track improvements overtime, set energy saving and efficiency goals and compare performance against local, state and national benchmarks.
For more information on the Geneva workshop and to pre-register by the December 3rd deadline, contact the Fillmore County Extension office at 402-759-3712 or email Brandy VanDeWalle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
