Practical Farm Research (PFR)®

Beck’s Practical Farm Research provides farmers with the best farmer-focused research and advisors to add profitability to their farm. We do this by conducting unbiased agronomic research and delivering it to farmers. By bringing new ideas and challenging the status quo of current farming practices, PFR works to facilitate the network of agricultural industry leaders to keep the needs of the farmer first. In 2016, we are conducting more than 100 studies at our 6 PFR locations across 5 states. Of these studies, more than 60 are replicated at multiple locations.

 

VALUE OF MULTI-LOCATION RESEARCH

Results from a single site are informative about the results of that year’s weather on that particular soil. Multi-location, multi-year data allows us to observe long-term trends and gain a much broader perspective. View our 2017 multi-location studies here.

 

 

PFR BOOK

Each year, new technologies and management practices emerge, making it difficult for farmers to evaluate all the options. So, we do it for you. The research and agronomic results from the 100+ studies conducted across five states are then shared through our annual PFR book. This year, we hope to include the results from our PFR Partners on-farm testing program in Michigan, Tennessee, Missouri, and Wisconsin, as well.
