High quality, relevant information is key to making the right management decisions for your farm. The eFields program at The Ohio State University was created to provide local information about critical issues for Ohio agriculture. The 2018 eFields Research Report highlighting 95 on-farm, field scale trials conducted in 25 Ohio counties was released on Jan. 9. Research topics include nutrient management, precision seeding, crop management, soil compaction management, remote sensing, and data analysis and management. To help identify trial locations that are similar to your operation, each study includes information about weather, soil types, and management practices. Additionally, economic analysis was added to select trials this year. QR codes that link to videos featuring the researchers and partner farmers are available in the report.
The 2018 report is now available in both a print and e-version. To receive a printed copy, contact your local OSU Extension office or email email@example.com. The e-version can be viewed and downloaded at go.osu.edu/eFields.
The eFields team has planned four regional results meetings to discuss local results and gather information about research interests for 2019. There is no cost to attend; for more information or to register for a meeting, visit go.osu.edu/eFieldsMeeting. Please plan to join us for the meeting nearest you:
Southwest Region: February 13th, 9AM-12PM, Wilmington
Northwest Region: February 20th, 9AM-12PM, Wauseon
East Region: February 27th, 5-8:30PM, Massillon
West Central Region: February 28th, 9AM-12PM, Piqua
We would like to sincerely thank all of our 2018 collaborating farms and industry partners. The eFields team enjoys working with each of you and we are looking forward to continuing to learn together in 2019.
