North Dakota State University's Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC) is holding its annual agronomy field day virtually this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prerecorded videos on agronomy will go live July 14. Anyone can view them from a smartphone or computer at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/CarringtonREC.

“This format will allow us to meet the objectives of our field day by providing updates on the center’s crop production 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.”

The center also is holding its beef production, horticulture and organic/sustainable agriculture field days virtually this year. The videos for those events will go live July 14 as well.
