With planting season just starting to begin, now is a perfect time to think about partnering with Paulding County Extension for an on-farm research trial. If you’re looking to dip your toe into the ‘research’ pool for the first time, here are a few simple ideas for projects that can be planned right now!
- Nitrogen Rate Trial – you can look at different N rates at plant, for side dress, or both to determine what the crops on your land really need… and potentially how much money you could save by reducing your N input costs!
- Seeding Rate Trial – curious if you could reduce your seeding rate without seeing negative yield impacts? We can help set this up!
- Soil Health – wondering how a new field compares to one of your best? We can test the health of your soil, completely free to you!
