Hettinger Research Extension Center to Hold Field Day

The Hettinger Research Extension Center will hold its field day July 7 and an online program July 8.

Small-grain varieties will be one of the topics covered during this year’s field day at North Dakota State University’s Hettinger Research Extension Center (HREC).

The tour begins at 4 p.m. July 7. Registration is required because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and no meal will be served this year. To register, call the center at 701-567-4323 by July 6.

In addition to small-grain varieties, HREC researchers Caleb Dalley and John Rickertsen will highlight current agronomy research projects and weed control research.

Researchers also will host an online session with agronomic information from specialists across the state, including updates from the Hettinger and Dickinson Research Extension Centers. It will be held July 8 at 9 a.m. Mountain time. Visit the center’s website at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/HettingerREC for information on accessing this session.

“The field tour will allow producers to see our current research like soybean population, spring wheat seed treatment and effective herbicide options for regional crops, along with looking at some alternative crops like hemp and buckwheat,” Rickertsen says. “The online webinar on July 8 will allow producers to hear from Fargo specialists who would normally be at the field tour, and there will be a live session after each presentation to allow for questions.”
