Research in Action

Whether it is conducted at the Eastern Nebraska Research, Extension and Education Center, another University or Nebraska research site, in a grower’s field, a producer’s feedlot, in a lab or in a classroom, our research is designed to seek out answers that Nebraskans can use.  University of Nebraska research is conducted on a vast array of topics that are pertinent to Nebraskans. While the primary focus of research conducted within the Eastern Nebraska Research, Extension and Education Center (ENREEC) is focused on Eastern Nebraska, our research impacts people across Nebraska, the United States, and the world.  Learn about our latest research projects in the videos on this page.
