NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center Holding Virtual Row Crop Program

Prerecorded videos will be available Aug. 27.

North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC) is holding its annual row crop program virtually this summer because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This format will allow us to meet the objectives of our tour by providing updates on the center’s corn, dry bean, soybean and sunflower research and recommendations for farmers and crop advisers,” says Greg Endres, Extension cropping systems specialist at the center. “Ag audiences will be able to watch the videos at a time convenient for their schedules.”

Prerecorded videos will be available Aug. 27. The videos can be viewed at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/CarringtonREC/videos.
