Agronomic Crops

The goal of the NFREC-SV farm is to provide relevant scientific updates on products and varieties that farmers in the area can use to improve their own operations. With over 200,000 acres dedicated to agronomic crops in the Suwannee River Water Management District, NFREC-SV faculty and staff welcome collaboration with industry, government and university researchers to help our extension programs. Below is a list of demonstration studies and applied research being conducted at the NFREC-SV:

  • Corn- Irrigation and nutrient management, Industry sponsored varietal trial, BMP production demonstration and On-farm fertility demonstrations and Potassium rate study.
  • Peanuts- Irrigation and nutrient management, Breeding evaluation, Fungicide trial, Nozzle droplet coverage efficacy and Industry sponsored fungicide trial.
  • Sorghum- Breeding nursery for grain and biofuel variety advancement and Industry trial for new cultivars of sorghum.
  • Carinata- Genotype screening for North Florida, Fertility Trials for optimal yields and Commercial/On-farm production trials with recommended programs.
