Agronomy

Midway District has nearly 250,000 acres harvested each year. This results in grain sales measuring almost $66 million per year. The land in the Midway District is diversified. We grow wheat, grain sorghum, soybeans, corn, grass hay, alfalfa, and sunflowers.

While farming is admirable as a way of life, it is also a business. Therefore, our research-based programs promote:

  • effective production practices
  • competitive pricing
  • business management skills
  • environmentally sound production practices
  • alternative agriculture businesses
  • youth education about food and fiber sources

Our office provides information on soil testing and analysis, variety selection, demonstration plots, drought issues, and cropping systems.
