Agronomic Research Trials

The following information is a listing of additional agronomic research that was conducted at the Carrington Research Extension Center in 2000.  CREC and other NDSU research staff provide this list to illustrate specific research issues that are being addressed.  The listing briefly describes the trial and indicates project leaders and/or collaborators.  Results of this work are normally available at some later date. Numbers in parentheses indicate the number of trials conducted, followed by project leaders and/or collaborators and NDSU department.
