Field management data wanted for research

A University of Wisconsin study is collecting field data from farmers to help them pick better management practices.

Shawn Conley with the Wisconsin Soybean Program is gathering data from farmers about how they manage their fields so they can help farmers make better agronomic decisions.  “We’re looking for data from 2021 but we’re really going to have a heavy push after this 2022 crop comes off.”

Conley tells Brownfield the farmer data remains confidential but allows researchers to aggregate information and help guide farmers to the tools that work by using big data.
