North Central Soybean Research Program Survey For On-Farm Research

Please consider participating in  North Central Soybean Research Program’s (NCSRP) on-farm research in 2022! In this program, researchers are collecting farmer data such as yield, management practices, and associated costs in fields located across the NCSRP region via online surveys. The goal is to develop a new online cropping system optimization decision tool that uses the data collected in the survey for soybean farmers in the North Central Soybean Production zone, which includes North Dakota.


The survey is online and will take about 10-20 minutes to complete. The Precision Agriculture Specialist, Dr. David Kramar of NDSU and his team are willing to come to your farm office to help you complete the survey.


By providing your field data, you can contribute to the development of a cropping system optimization decision tool. Following the development, the publicly available tool will allow growers to drop a pin in a field, enter input variables, and receive crop management decision help directly and through online scouting tools such as Sporecaster and Tarspotter. The tool will also provide insights for best management practices in your fields that can help increase yield and profit.
