Agronomy Seed Farm Annual Field Day Set for July 14

The North Dakota State University Agronomy Seed Farm field day will be held July 14 beginning at 5 p.m.

Researchers from several NDSU plant breeding programs will lead discussions on variety development and new varieties available for producers.

Researchers also will talk about new trends in the industry relating to their respective crop and what NDSU is doing to advance the bottom line for the producers of these crops. Crops included in these discussions will be spring and durum wheat, barley and soybeans.

John Nowatzki, NDSU Extension agricultural machine systems specialist, will present information on his work with unmanned aerial vehicle research for agricultural applications. He will provide an insight into the various types of machines, systems and software available.

NDSU weed researchers will update producers on herbicide and weed control topics and the current focus of their research programs.

Several state Extension specialists will give updates on current areas of interest relative to their area of expertise and for individual consultation in areas of producer concern.

At the conclusion of the tour, a complimentary meal will be served by NDSU’s Carnivore Catering.

The farm is one mile south and one mile west of Casselton, according to Tom Teigen, NDSU Agronomy Seed Farm director.
