Agronomic Research Trials

The following information is a listing of other agronomic research that was conducted at the Carrington Research Extension Center in 1999. The list is provided to illustrate specific research issues that are being addressed by CREC and other NDSU research staff. 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.
