BRANDT and LLCC collaborate on ag research

BRANDT, a leading agriculture retailer and manufacturer of agricultural specialty products, and LLCC Agriculture have formed a working relationship for on-campus research and development into production agriculture practices. The collaboration will help student development and help define the future of production agriculture practices. Both organizations share a commitment to the future of agriculture in central Illinois. This initiative will fit nicely with BRANDT’s extensive trials at the company’s research farms in Pleasant Plains and Lexington, Ill.

BRANDT and LLCC will work together on the main campus’ 45-acre “Land Lab,” focusing on corn and soybean production best practices. In addition, BRANDT will collaborate on research efforts at the Kreher Farm in Blue Mound, Ill. Both locations will be working to gain production agriculture knowledge, prepare students to further their education or develop students to enter the workforce. Plans are in place and work for the 2018 cropping season has already begun.
