The UNL Testing Ag Performance Solutions (TAPS) program is a farm management competition that challenges producers in areas of input use efficiency and profitability. The goals and mission of the TAPS program align closely with those of the Nebraska Corn Board (NCB), especially as we seek to identify sustainable and profitable management practices and solutions for corn production. A key benefit of the TAPS program is that it provides producers the opportunity to try new and emerging technologies and management strategies prior to purchasing and adopting on their own farm. This program provides a touchstone where people can observe and use new ideas, test conventional wisdom, and discover better ways to do business in an environment of friendly competition.
