A New Multistate Research Project

The DIFM team has created a multistate Research Project, titled NC1210: Frontiers in On-Farm Experimentation. This project will enable researchers from all across the United States to collaborate and host meetings on an annual basis.

Land Grant Participating States/Institutions: CA, IA, IL, IN, KS, LA, MI, MN, MS, MT, ND, NE, NY, OH, OK, WA, WI. Non-Land Grant Participating States/Institutions: Illinois State University, Iowa Soybean Association, Purdue University, USDA-ARS.

Test-Driving Our New Veris U3


Bob Dunker, a member of our research team, spent an afternoon in the sun testing out our new Veris U3 on the Morrow Plots, the oldest continually used experimental agricultural fields in the United States. The Veris U3 uses an electrical array to map deep into the soil rooting profile of a field. These maps will help us to characterize fields by providing us with information about the electroconductivity of the fields in our experiments. Check out the Veris website for more information about their technology!
