Strip Trial Program

The “MU Certified” Strip Trial Program is a grower-focused program to help Missouri farmers and crop advisors compare on-farm management decisions and practices in a low-cost, low-risk setting.

We work with farmers to implement field-scale, side-by-side comparisons of management practices on their farm. All farmers get a personalized summary report of results from their field.

Additionally, results are summarized across multiple sites and years, so all Missouri farmers have access to impartial information to guide decisions and evaluate new management practices.

Thanks to the support of our sponsors, there are no fees for working with MU Extension to implement and analyze strip trials.
