As some may have noticed in their mailbox earlier this month, Minnesota Corn’s Research Summary 2017 has been released! We invite you to read this year’s summary and see Minnesota corn check-off dollars at work funding research that improves agricultural practices and creates new opportunities for corn farmers.
Minnesota Corn Growers Association and the Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council directs more than $4 million annually to independent research projects that promote the environmental and economic sustainability of farmers. Examples in this year’s summary include research on the development of value-added products, management of corn inputs, issues related to ethanol use, genetic traits and more.
Growers are invited to apply the information found in this year’s research summary to their own farm operations to help optimize best management practices and increase yields and returns.
