In 2018, 48 trials were conducted in 24 Missouri counties, says MU Extension nutrient management specialist John Lory. Trials included nitrogen response, cover crop comparisons, cover crop termination date, phosphorous, ILeVO seed treatment for soybean and fungicide.

The grower-focused program helps Missouri farmers and crop advisors compare on-farm management decisions and practices in a low-cost, low-risk setting.  MU conducted 150 trials during the past three years.
