Ewing Demonstration Center

A Legacy of Ag Research and Demonstration

We know your success depends on your farm's profitability. To do that, you need high yield with reasonable inputs. While there is a lot of great information available for farmers, you may wonder if it applies to our region's growing conditions. Illinois Extension has trusted experts to provide best management practices for the southern Illinois farming community.

Ewing Demonstration Center has served the agricultural community of southern Illinois since 1910. The Center, operated by University of Illinois Extension and College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences, drives research in the areas of:

  • Insecticide and herbicide trials
  • Variety trials for corn, soybean, sorghum, and wheat
  • Cover crops
  • Pumpkins

For more than 50 years, the Center has featured no-till research and demonstration plots. It is located in Franklin County and offers representative growing conditions for southern Illinois.
