Crop production and marketing opportunities are among the topics for the Carrington Research Extension Center’s 2019 agronomy field day.

Crop agronomics, pest management and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are among the topics that will be covered during the annual field day Tuesday, July 16, 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 crop researchers and Extension specialists.

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

The first tour will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Participants can learn about:

  • Spring wheat and dry bean variety performance
  • Corn status and late-season production recommendations
  • CREC research on corn, dry beans and pulse crops
  • Barley and pulse crop market opportunities

During lunch, a UAV exhibit will allow field day participants to view various UAVs and visit with researchers.

The second crop tour will run from 1:15 to 3 p.m. Specific topics are:

  • Enhancement of CREC research with UAVs
  • Weed identification and management issues
  • Dry bean fungicide application for white mold disease management
  • Soil management research
  • Industrial hemp

In addition to the agronomy tours, field day visitors will have the opportunity to attend fruit, beef cattle and organic tours.
