Western Research and Demonstration Farm
Since its inception in 1946, Iowa State University’s (ISU) Western Research Farm (WRF) has fulfilled its original stated objective of “careful research giving definite answers to specific problems.” In continuing with that tradition, the WRF joined the On-farm Research Network of the ISU Corn and Soybean Initiative (CSI) and started conducting on-farm trials with participating local producers during the 2010 growing season. The on-farm research network was initiated in 2006 and underwent a metamorphosis in 2011 into the Iowa State University Farmer Assisted Research and Management (ISU FARM) network.
