Welcome to the Eastern Nebraska Research & Extension (ENRE) - Northeast District. The role of the faculty and staff in this unit is to prevent or solve problems using research based information. They subscribe to the notion that our programs should be high quality, ecologically sound, economically viable, socially responsible and scientifically appropriate. As part of the University of Nebraska, we consider ourselves the front door to the University of those we serve in northeast Nebraska. Through well targeted training backgrounds and continuous updating via the internet and other telecommunications technologies, our staff have the most current information available to help our clientele. Extension programs share the research to the people in Nebraska. The following facilities are resources in the Eastern Nebraska Research & Extension Center - Northeast District.

Megan Taylor
Extension Educator

Hi my name is Megan Taylor and I am originally from Jay County, Indiana. I received my undergraduate degree in Biology from Manchester University, with a focus on plant system interactions and food security. During my undergraduate summers, I worked as a field scout in east central Indiana and western Ohio, this experience is what prompted me to be an agronomist. I then went on to Purdue University and earned my Ph.D. in Agronomy.

My research primarily focused on the development of Switchgrass as a biofuel and grazing crop. Specifically looking at flowering time and forage quality genes associated with different ecotypes. I am proud to serve farmers in Nebraska and learn from them. I specialize in crop physiology, forages, and IPM.
