Digital Ag & On Farm Research

go beyond the map - put technology and data to work

Many farmers have the ability to rapidly collect a lot of data on their farms through tools like yield monitors—although these tools are not often leveraged to their full potential.

The Nebraska Extension Digital Ag and On-Farm Research team can help you utilize ag tools to perform research on your own farm, generating valuable information to guide future management decisions. Extension experts can also help you test new ag tools to determine how they will perform on your own farm.

From that research you’ll discover actionable items to improve your bottom line – and then be able to repeat that scenario to test new tools, technology and hardware to help you get better every year.
