Northwest Minnesota On-Farm Research Network
 

THE ON-FARM RESEARCH NETWORK perfectly embodies the application of robust datasets in real-world environments with direct and measurable results.

 

The group is an amalgamation of farmers, agronomists, university researchers and field specialists that gathers to share ideas and contribute to a local information database for growers in the Red River Valley. Participants get to learn more about how to conduct their own research get help with field design, data analysis, and results interpretation. Check it out here! www.smallgrains.org/farm-research-network/

 

It doesn't get much better than testing out ideas, products, etc. in the real world in your own field to find out what happens! We've been there since the beginning. Check out this exciting group on Facebook!

Public Health Services

 

WE HAVE REAMS OF PUBLIC HEALTH DATA at EvaluationGroup because we've been deeply invested in working to improve the health of area residents using the latest data and informatics tools available. We live and work in the region and so have a vested stake in health of our neighbors and friends.

 

In fact, we've been so involved that we've dedicated a whole webpage for documenting and displaying the collection of all the data, reports and recommendations we've prepared. We are also working on including a newly developed meta-analysis review of our past 13 years of work in the region. Check out our work in public health here!!
