2020 Research Extension Center Field Days

North Dakota State University Research Extension Centers have moved their annual field days online this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the centers will have prerecorded videos go live on their scheduled field day and some will have a live Zoom webinar. Some sites may be having a live event for a limited number of people so be sure to pre-register at that site for more information.

RECs that have already held their virtual field days include Hettinger, Dickinson, Williston and the Agronomy Seed Farm. Centers with virtual field days this week include Carrington on July 14, North Central (Minot) on July 15, and Langdon on July 16.
