The agronomy program at Vernon includes applied research trials on profitable crop production, rangeland/pasture management, and outreach efforts to our clientele in the Rolling Plains of Texas.
Research trials within this group include cultivar testing, nutrient management, cropping systems, alternative crops, weed and brush control, and rangeland/pasture management.
The goal is to provide sustainable and economically sound agronomic practices to producers in the Rolling Plains of Texas.
Following all research trials, we strive to deliver information and results to clientele in the Rolling Plains of Texas through county meetings, field day, regional conferences, extension publications, and more.
