Research Extension Center Field Days Mostly Virtual This Summer

The RECs have modified their field days in the interest of public health and safety.

North Dakota State University’s seven Research Extension Centers and Agronomy Seed Farm will host virtual field days in July and August.

“In the interest of public health and safety, we will be modifying our field days to be held primarily virtually or with small-group tours this summer,” says Greg Lardy, NDSU vice president for Agricultural Affairs. “This will allow producers and other interested parties to receive updates on the research at the centers at their leisure in an environment of their choosing.”

Short prerecorded videos will be shot on location so producers can see the researchers’ work, Lardy says. Research Extension Center and NDSU main campus scientists and Extension specialists will talk about a wide variety of current topics.

“We’re glad we can use various technologies to share with producers, even during the pandemic,” Lardy says.
