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.

Profitable Crop Production System
The team conducts applied research trials on crops commonly grown in the Rolling Plains of Texas (e.g., cotton, wheat, canola, sorghum, and other alternative crops) and determines the Best Management Practices (BMPs) for producers in the region.
On-going applied research trials include variety trials for:
- cotton, wheat (grain, forage, and dual-purpose), and canola
- population trials for cotton and wheat (Grain, forage, and dual-purpose)
- crop rotation trials for wheat, canola, and winter lentil.
The objective with this project is to conduct applied research trials on rangeland/pasture system. On-going applied research trials include teff variety trial, teff fertility trial, and cool-season annual forage variety trial.
Variety trial results: Cotton, Wheat, Canola, and Forage
Weed control: Cotton, Wheat, and Rangeland/Pasture
General practice information: Cotton, Wheat, Canola, Sorghum, and Forage
