The 2018 Research Directory is available now for farmers interested in an overview of research projects jointly funded by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) and the Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council (MCR&PC) through the Minnesota corn check-off.
The 2018 directory features the latest on research focused on agronomy and plant genetics, corn utilization, fuels and emissions, livestock, soil fertility, water quality, and projects through the Minnesota Corn Innovation Grant Program.
Exciting research covered in the directory includes projects aimed at increasing corn demand, including research on corn-derived materials used to strengthen plastics and the production of food-grade DDGs for human consumption. Readers will learn more about projects with leading researchers to determine how certain practices can improve yield while building healthier soils. Additional projects covered in the publication include research of on-farm practices that more effectively hold nutrients in the soil, preventing run-off and limiting expenses on the farm.
In the 2018 Research Directory, Growers will also be able to learn more about each 2018 Innovation Grant project led by Minnesota farmers focused on preventing nitrogen loss. If you are interested in learning more about the Innovation Grant Program and leading a project of your own in 2019, click here.
Farmers are encouraged to download the Research Directory at mncorn.org/publications to learn more about the research funded by the corn check-off that promotes the success of Minnesota corn farmers, their families and Minnesota’s rural economy.
