Research Reports


The Carrington Research Extension Center conducts research and hosts educational programs to enhance the productivity, competitiveness, and diversity of agriculture in central North Dakota and beyond. Research activities at the CREC include scientists and support staff trained in implementing programs in Agronomy, Plant Pathology, Soil Science, Precision Agriculture and Animal Science. These program teams are able to address a broad scope of factors that impact North Dakota agriculture. The crop diversity of the state is addressed in all program areas and is further supported by the ability to conduct research under both dryland and irrigated conditions. Projects addressing organic crop production and a fruit and berry program broaden the constituency being served. The foundation seed program of the Center represents an important part of the overall NDSU Foundation Seed program. The CREC is the base of operation for four state Extension specialists. The research reports highlight specific research we are conducting.

Calibrating fungicide spray droplet size relative to canopy closure confers strong improvements in fungicide efficacy against white mold in soybeans, and this research sought to evaluate whether a similar response might be observed in…
Testing two nitrogen-fixing biological products in spring wheat.
Between 2021 and 2023 trials were conducted near Carrington and Prosper, ND to determine the effect of corn residual herbicides on common cover crop species.
The use of peroxide-based fungicides has been adopted by some producers in our region as a tool for inhibiting the development of white mold. This study was designed to provide rigorous data to growers, agronomists, and crop advisors who…
A study to test the potential use of soybean hulls as a source of nitrogen fertilizer.
A field study to examine soybean response to preplant-applied P for corn plus soybean the year prior to soybean production versus P application for corn followed by P application the next year for soybean.
