Field-scale on-farm research is vital to advancing on-farm agronomic knowledge and can add further understanding to how particular management practices impact crop quality and yield on each farm. In the 2020 growing season, the Alberta Grains launched the on-farm research program, Plot2Farm.

Plot2Farm aims to bring agronomic management research to the farm-gate. Adapted from small plot research, Alberta Grains developed farm-ready research protocols that farmers can implement on-farm with the help of an agronomist.

Example Trials

Plot2Farm applicants can select from a wide range of protocols for both spring wheat and barley. If you cannot find a protocol that serves your agronomic question, a small number of spaces are left open for custom-designed protocols.
