Farmers, crop advisers and agricultural industry representatives are invited to attend a row-crop field tour, scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 3, at the NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center. The tour is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. and conclude with a sponsored supper.
Participants will view field research trials and receive production commendations on corn, dry beans and soybeans, according to Greg Endres, NDSU Extension Service area agronomist.
“Our objective is to concisely discuss as many production subjects and share as much research trial data as possible to give participants information they can utilize for their farms or farm clients,” Endres said.
The tour agenda includes:
• Corn growing season review and plant nutrition
• Dry bean plant establishment
• Soybean variety selection, planting dates and herbicide-resistant kochia management
• Disease management in dry beans and soybeans, with an emphasis on white mold (sclerotinia) and soybean cyst nematode
• Industrial beets project update
Tour speakers include NDSU Extension and research agronomists, plus plant pathologists.
North Dakota commodity organizations associated with the crops covered during the tour are refreshment and meal sponsors.
Continuing education credits are available for certified crop advisers participating in the event.
