  Fermilab aims to provide greater beam power for the neutrino physics program. As the beam power increases, the unwanted production of secondary electrons in the beam pipe, known as ‘electron cloud’ or ‘E-cloud’ may become disruptive to high intensity operation. Instrumentation has been deployed in the Fermilab Main Injector (MI) to study E-cloud. One of these is a Retard Field Analyzer (RFA) that can be used to directly measure E-cloud generation at the location of the instrument. Studies of the dependence of E-cloud on beam intensity and bunch length have been carried out. The experimental results are compared to POSINST simulations. These simulations are guided by measurements from a Secondary Electron Yield (SEY) test stand installed in the MI to measure the SEY of materials such as the beam pipe stainless steel. The SEY has a strong influence on the E-cloud density. Results of these comprehensive studies comparing the RFA data with realistic MI simulations will be presented.
