(WFRV) – As planters continue to roll across Wisconsin, test plots are getting in the ground.
These tools allow producers and seed dealers to measure how different varieties perform in identical, real-world scenarios.
In this segment of Life on the Farm, we explore how these plots are planted and what information organizers hope to gain.
(WFRV) – Since 1991, AgrAbility of Wisconsin has been promoting success in agriculture for farmers with disabilities and their families.
Over 4,000 injuries occur on Wisconsin farms each year, many resulting in permanent disabilities. In the entire United States, agricultural production is one of the most hazardous occupations with the highest disabling injury rate of any industry.
AgrAbility services are available to those individuals and their families who are engaged in farming or farm-related occupations and are coping with the effects of a disability. Services provided at the home or farm are confidential.
Life on the Farm is a partnership with Fox Valley Technical College. FVTC offers 14 Agriculture programs of study, including Associate Degree programs in Agribusiness Science & Technology – Animal Science and Agriculture Power Equipment.
