About the On-Farm Network

The Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers (MPSG) made a commitment in 2014 to expand the network of on-farm research throughout the province and officially launched the On-Farm Network on April 7, 2014. MPSG began funding on-farm research in 2010 and has continually seen the benefits to farmers and industry. Conducting on-farm research gives us the ability to answer production questions using an approach that is timely and relevant and provides answers to farmers over a wide geographical region.

The overall goal is to test new products and practices for pulse and soybean production while empowering farmers to conduct simple, reliable research on their farm.

What is the MPSG On-Farm Network?

The MPSG On-Farm Network is a network of on-farm research related to pulse and soybean crops that is fully funded and directed by Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers. All research in this network  is based on three important principles:

  1. Participatory – conducted on-farm with farmers
  2. Precise – produces data that is unbiased, accurate and robust
  3. Proactive – delivers results to guide management decisions and improve productivity and profitability
