Academics

The Teaching and Demonstration Farm has roughly 200 acres in row crop production, these are primary corn, soybeans, and wheat. The majority of these acres are test plots.

 

The University faculty as well as 7 regional and national seed and chemical companies cooperate on a variety of trials. The data collected from these trials goes to help local and regional farmers with selecting varieties to plant and herbicide and pesticide programs to use on their farms . Proceeds from available crop sales are used to support teaching and research on the farm.
