This guide, and supporting case studies, walks producers through a step-by-step process for planning, preparing and conducting research trials on the farm. Some of these steps include:
Formulating the research question
Determining what to measure
Ensuring timing and accuracy of data collection
Using field data sheets
Analyzing and interpreting results
The guide includes blank pages and templates for capturing notes and data.
This video highlights the value producers can get from conducting their own on-farm research and explains how to use the Guide to On-Farm Demonstration Research. It shares the experiences of producers in the Bulkley-Nechako & Fraser-Fort George region who participated in an applied research project testing forage production practices and helped inform the development of the guide.
