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 2020 eFields Research Report highlights 218 on-farm, field scale trials conducted in 39 Ohio counties. Research topics included nutrient management, precision crop management, cover crops, and forages. Other information about crop production budgets, planting progress, and farm business analysis was also included. New in 2020 was the addition of soil health and water quality trials.
The 2020 report is now available in both a print and e-version. To receive a printed copy, contact your local OSU Extension office or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-version can be viewed and downloaded at go.osu.edu/eFields with the online version readable using a smartphone or tablet device.
The eFields team has planned weekly webinars every Tuesday at 10AM EST in January and February. The events in January are replacing the annual Precision U event. This year’s theme focuses on “Tackling Spring Operations with Reduced Working Days.” For more information, visit go.osu.edu/PrecisionU. The events in February are focused on eFields research projects and will provide the opportunity to discuss results and gather information about research interests for 2021. More details are available at go.osu.edu/AgTechTues. There is no cost to attend any of the webinars so please plan to join us for one or all!
