Auburn, AL

The Yara North America Incubator Farm in Auburn, Alabama is a center for research, solution trials and knowledge sharing. Through collaborative efforts with Auburn University, as well as customers, partners, and various technology providers, Yara utilizes the farm to study and advance insights into all aspects of the cropping system.

By utilizing large, multi-acre plots of row crops including corn, cotton and soybeans on 80 acres (60 of which are irrigated), Yara and its partners will be able to gather many layers of data and intimate knowledge of every aspect of the cropping system over the coming years. The field scale research at the farm will provide valuable insight into the conditions and challenges that growers and advisors face.

In addition to research, the Incubator Farm will also act as a place for partnerships with industry organizations to develop long-term relevant solutions for growers through collaboration.

The farm is available to Yara’s retail partners to give their customers the opportunity to see first hand the benefits of a complete crop nutrition solution.
