60 Years of Tradition


The Carrington Research Extension Center will be hosting our Annual Field Day on Tuesday, July 16, 2019. Field Day kicks off at 9 a.m. with a welcome and refreshments at the Main Station. Morning tours leave the yard at 9:30.

There are four tours to choose from in the morning:

  1. Crop Varieties and Research Review
  2. Livestock Production Review
  3. Organic Research and Education
  4. Northern Hardy Fruit Review.

After a noon meal, there will be an additional agronomy tour from 1:15-3:00 p.m. on the topics of Production Systems/Plant Nutrition/Plant Pathology.

This Field Day is special to us because we are celebrating 60 years of showing farmers, ranchers and other agricultural constituents examples of our research projects and sharing information they may use in managing their agriculture operations. Throughout these 60 years, the scope of research projects and information shared during the field day has grown and evolved. In the early 60’s, the trials were exclusive to the subject of irrigation whereas this year’s field day has the diversity of programs previously mentioned.

Field Day is free and open to the public. We hope you will join us on July 16. 

If you choose to visit us at any other time of the year, know you are certainly welcome. If you do visit, please check in at the Main Office so that someone may direct you to your areas of interest and to provide guidance or direction to ensure your safety and the integrity of ongoing research projects.

Please call us with questions at 701-652-2951.
