This special issue of Integrated Crop Management highlights research projects from Iowa State University's research and demonstration farms. A map with each article shows where the research was conducted.
Each year semi-technical reports from each farm are made available to the public. Research reports from the farms on the map are available free of charge by calling 515-294-4620 or 1-800-532-2354. There is a sampling of projects summarized in each report on Page 13.
You can see research in action by attending field days at the farms this summer and fall. See page 10 for the field day dates. At those events a full complement of farm staff, researchers and extension staff are on hand to answer your questions and listen to your comments.
We hope this special issue will help you understand how the farms serve you. And we encourage you to visit a research and demonstration farm in your area.
