Yara Incubator Farms
Yara grows knowledge to responsibly feed the world and protect the planet, to fulfill our vision of a collaborative society, a world without hunger and a planet respected.
To support this effort, the Yara Incubator Farms in Auburn, AL, Modesto, CA, Columbia Basin, WA, and Saskatoon, SK, were created as a place to explore, evolve, refine and share knowledge. At the combined 500-acre Farms, field-scale soil fertility and crop nutrient management research will be done in collaboration with partners, customers and various technology providers for the betterment of the agriculture industry and our communities, as well as implementing solutions to decarbonize the value chain.
Utilizing large, multi-acre plots enables Yara and its partners to gather many layers of data and intimate knowledge of every aspect of the cropping system over the years. The Auburn farm, established in partnership with Auburn University, is currently growing corn, cotton, and soybeans on 80 acres, 60 of which are irrigated. The Modesto farm has 40 acres of fertigated and established almonds, and 40 acres of irrigated and established walnuts. The Columbia Basin farm has 260 acres of potato trials. The 80 acres of the Saskatoon farm are devoted to large-scale Crop Solutions Trials and small plot Discovery Trials featuring wheat, canola, peas, and barley grown in rotation.
