Normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) is used to measure photosynthetic activity and health in plants. We have performed mapping with NDVI here on the research farm to predict the yield of crops. In this study, we measure the effects of various yield enhancing products, while taking NDVI imagery. The NDVI imagery allowed a relative estimate […]
Who are We?
The Farm Research Center is a Research Farm located near Garden City, Missouri. We specialize in testing to achieve the highest yield possible by using environment friendly procedures.Learn More
We do research in several areas, including chemical testing, seed variety trials, genetics research, biologicals research, and seed treatment testing.Learn More
We currently have several research trials going on at the Farm Research Center. These include high yield trials, drought resistance trials, and many more.Learn More
Our Current Research Experiments
On The Research Farm, we focus on yield, but we want yield at a reasonable cost. One of the trials we performed this year was to examine the return-on-investment (ROI) of BigYield’s BP In-Furrow treatment on corn, as well as a new Selective Release Nitrogen (SRN). After the trials, we observed that both the BP […]
This year we began using burners to control weed and insects. Burning kills weeds by vaporizing the water in the plant’s cells, causing the plant die. It also controls insects through the vaporization of water. We performed numerous burns in both corn and soybeans, and compared these yields to areas we did not burn. The […]
