Lee Greenley Jr. Memorial Research Center

Located in the claypan soil region of northeast Missouri, this Center evaluates efficient and profitable crop production while emphasizing soil conservation, water quality and energy efficiency. It is involved in developing a systems approach for irrigation and drainage using drain tile and studying paired watersheds to evaluate the impact of agroforestry practices on water quality. Ongoing performance testing of corn, soybean, sunflowers, biomass and winter wheat yields results to aid Missouri producers.
