Row Crop Tour Set for Sept. 3 at NDSU Carrington REC


Farmers, crop advisers and agricultural industry representatives are invited to attend a row-crop field tour on Wednesday, Sept. 3, at the Carrington Research Extension Center. The tour will begin at 4:30 p.m. and conclude with a sponsored supper.

Participants will view field research trials and receive production recommendations on corn, dry beans and soybeans. The objective is to concisely discuss as many production subjects and share as much research trial data as possible to give participants information they can utilize for their farms or farm clients.

The tour agenda includes:

  • Corn growing season review and plant nutrition
  • Dry bean plant establishment
  • Soybean variety selection, planting dates and herbicide-resistant kochia management
  • Disease management in dry beans and soybeans, with an emphasis on white mold (sclerotinia) and soybean cyst nematode
  • Industrial beets project update

Tour speakers include NDSU Extension and research agronomists as well as plant pathologists.


North Dakota commodity organizations associated with the crops covered during the tour will be sponsoring the refreshments and meal.

Continuing education credits will be available for certified crop advisers participating in the event.

Additional information about the tour is available from the Carrington REC at (701) 652-2951 or on the Web at
