Mark your calendars for the 32nd annual Northwestern Illinois Agricultural Research and Demonstration Center Field day!
A list of the small-plot research trials planned for the Northwestern Illinois Agricultural Research and Demonstration Center in 2013 was recently compiled.
Although corn has not yet been planted, folks are scheduling foliar fungicide sprays. Here are some factors to consider.
The 2012 field season was the ninth year of an experiment at the NWIARDC comparing corn and soybean yields among continuous corn, corn-soybean, and corn-corn-soybean rotations.
The Northwestern Illinois Agricultural Research and Demonstration Center is a 320 acre facility, established in 1980 near Monmouth in Warren County. The Center is located on the very productive Argiudoll and Haplaquoll soils. Each year, approximately 50 different projects are conducted by up to 12 campus-based project leaders and the center superintendent. Subject matter areas involved in these projects include soil chemistry and fertility, soil management, crop production, weed science, entomology, plant pathology, pest management and environmental quality.
