The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network invites farmers and agronomists to the 2023 research results update meeting on Thursday, Feb. 16 in Beatrice at the Holiday Inn Express located at 4005 N 6th St. The meeting begins at 9 a.m. with check-in and refreshments beginning at 8:30 a.m.
As I stare out the window at the snow on the ground, it is hard to believe I am starting to get spring fever, but I am. I start thinking about my summer garden, the fresh produce, and what I want to grow this spring. The seed catalogs are all here and I’m ready to place my order so I can start my seeds indoors in the coming weeks. But what does all the information on the seed packet mean?

Thanks to my colleague, Nate Dorsey, for putting together this guest column for Crop Tech Cafe. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension has been sharing the latest information on crop production and research through a resource known as CropWatch since 1992. CropWatch originally started as a printed newsletter, but the newsletter could only be released a few times per season because of the logistics of printing and mailing new issues.
