Below is a list of the 2019 Research Cooperators.  We are very thankful to have so many returning Cooperators this year and excited to have new Cooperators as well!  For any questions regarding research data please contact the Cooperator.

SPECIAL SEASONAL NOTES:  On October 20th and 21st the Irrigation Research Foundation and many surrounding farmers were heavily impacted by high sustained winds. The result was significant ear loss and lodging to our corn crops. We were fortunate to have already harvested our Dry Edible Beans, Soybeans and Grain Sorghum.

Weather, daytime temperatures and other factors affect data results, as in any year. The Irrigation Research Foundation strives to record and control these factors where possible. Not all of these factors are measurable or recognized.
