The performance of spring wheat and dry bean varieties will be among the topics covered.

Crop variety performance and new technology are among the topics that will be covered during the annual field day Tuesday, July 17, at North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC).

“This is our premier summer event to showcase the center’s research and education programs,” says Greg Endres, Extension agronomist at the center. Speakers primarily will be NDSU research agronomists and Extension crop specialists.

Two crop tours will give participants an opportunity to view research trials and receive current production information.

One tour will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Crop variety performance and production management are the focus of the tour. Participants can learn about:

  • Spring wheat and dry bean variety performance
  • Future opportunities with soybean varieties
  • Corn status and late-season production recommendations
  • CREC research on spring wheat, corn, soybean, dry bean and pulse crops
  • Pulse crop market opportunities

The second crop tour will follow a noon lunch. The tour will run from 1 to 3 p.m. It will focus on crop production systems, new technology and legume crop disease management. Specific topics are:

  • Cover crops and intercropping in small-grain and row crops
  • Practical applications for unmanned aerial vehicles
  • Predicting wheat protein using canopy reflectance
  • Soybean rows and plant population impact on white mold management
  • Fungicide resistance of field pea and lentil

In addition to the agronomy tours, field day visitors will have the opportunity to attend fruit, livestock and sustainable agriculture tours.
