This winter, we are asking Nebraska crop producers to provide us with  yield and other agranomic data specific to four fields planted with soybeans in 2016 (see survey link below). Both dryland and irrigated fields are acceptable. With this data, we can conduct an in-depth analysis of what on-farm factors might be limiting soybean yield in your fields. We would appreciate if you completed this survey before April 1, 2017 and mail it to:

Dr. Patricio Grassini
Department of Agronomy and Horticulture
387 Plant Sciences Hall, UNL
Lincoln, NE 68583-0915
