163 Symposium--Developing On-Farm Research and Education Plots

Oral Session
A04 Extension Education

This symposium will be split into two distinct sessions. The first session will be developing and implementing on-farm research. We will discuss the collaborative opportunities as well as the inherent challenges of conducting this research. The second session will be centered around the development and use of large-scale, on-farm educational plots. We will discuss a range of educational opportunities such as pasture walks, grower clubs, yield trials, and "yield teams".
