Toolkit to Conduct Farm Research for Crops and Marketing
Devising and carrying out research tests can bring reliable, valuable answers to pressing production and marketing questions.
Farmers and ranchers seeking to cut production costs or improve their stewardship of natural resources often experiment with new methods. Devising and carrying out research tests with an organized design can bring reliable, valuable answers to some of your most pressing production questions. In "How to Conduct Research on Your Farm or Ranch," learn more about how to conduct research at the farm level. It includes practical tips for crop and livestock producers, four sidebars about SARE-funded producers who improved their farms, ranches and off-ranch marketing thanks to well-managed research, and a comprehensive list of more in-depth resources.
This 12-page bulletin outlines how to conduct research at the farm level, offering practical tips for both crop and livestock producers, as well as a comprehensive list of more in-depth resources. Real-life examples - from a Pennsylvania vegetable farmer testing new rotations to a Montana producer experimenting with legumes to build soil and prolong pasture - may stimulate research ideas. Co-written by a team of research scientists.
