Farmers, crop advisers and agricultural industry representatives are invited to attend a row-crop field tour on Thursday, Sept. 5, at the North Dakota State University Carrington Research Extension Center. The tour will begin at 4 p.m. and conclude with a sponsored supper.

Participants will view field research trials and receive production recommendations on corn, dry beans and soybeans, according to Greg Endres, NDSU Extension Service area agronomist.

"Our 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," Endres says.

The tour agenda includes:

* Corn growing season review, plant establishment and intensive management

* Dry bean plant establishment and disease management overview

* Soybean variety selection and plant establishment

* Row crop disease management with emphasis on root rots, white mold (sclerotinia) and soybean cyst nematode  

Tour speakers include NDSU agronomists and plant pathologists, plus industry agronomists.

North Dakota commodity organizations associated with the crops covered during the tour are refreshment and meal sponsors, and will provide brief updates on their activities during supper.

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
