Franklin Parish Crop Demonstrations 2010
On-farm crop demonstrations are used to show how LSU AgCenter recommendations perform on producer’s farms. Cooperating producers and their neighbors can view these demonstrations throughout a growing season and review the final harvest data. This information along with other LSU AgCenter publications is used by producers to make production decisions for the next year.
Several producers cooperated this year planting crop variety demonstrations.
