The field day is set for July 12.

Agricultural technology and research, crop production issues and crop marketing are among the topics that will be covered during the annual field day July 12 at North Dakota State University’s Dickinson Research Extension Center.

The half-day program will be held at the center’s headquarters in Dickinson. The event starts at 8:30 a.m. with registration and a welcome from Kris Ringwall, center director, and Ryan Buetow, the NDSU Extension Service’s area cropping systems specialist at the center.

“The program will focus on a wide range of methods and management practices that can assist producers with crop evaluation and soil improvement,” says Buetow, who coordinated the field day.

Topics and the presenters are:

  • Cover crops and biological strip till management - J.B. Heber, a producer from Zell, S.D.
  • How strip till affects corn - Joel Ransom, NDSU Extension agronomist
  • Use of unmanned aerial vehicles in agriculture and the normalized difference vegetation index, a graphical indicator that assesses live green vegetation - John Nowatzki, NDSU Extension agricultural machine systems specialist
  • Late-season fertilizer applications and a fertilizer update - Dave Franzen, NDSU Extension soil science specialist
  • Sprayer issues - Bob Weigelt, DuPont
  • Coated confection kernel for precision planting - Dennis Wiesenborn, a professor in NDSU’s Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department
  • Crop marketing outlook - Frayne Olson, NDSU Extension crops economist

A weed identification table will be available for producers to review and discuss issues with presenters.

Lunch will follow the field day at noon.
