Agronomy Experiment Fields

These fields offer valuable research opportunities for all Agronomy faculty, with a wide variety of soil types and environments. Overseeing each field is a Ph.D.-level Agronomist-In-Charge, and a committee that helps determine the programs to be conducted at each location. Each field has its own research equipment on site, and a trained staff to conduct research activities.

The Experiment Fields complement the land available for Agronomy research near the K-State campus in Manhattan. Together, these research sites provide opportunities for both practical and basic research. Research from the fields is published annually in the Agronomy Field Research Report.
