Crop variety performance and new technology are among the topics that will be covered during the annual field day Tuesday, July 17, at NDSU's Carrington Research Extension Center.
"This is our premier summer event to showcase the center's research and education programs," said Greg Endres, Extension agronomist at the center. Speakers primarily will be NDSU research agronomists and Extension crop specialists.
Participants can view research trials and receive production information during two crop tours.
One tour will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Attendees can learn about:
• Spring wheat and dry bean variety performance
• Future opportunities with soybean varieties
• Corn status and late-season production recommendations
• CREC research on spring wheat, corn, soybean, dry bean and pulse crops
• Pulse crop market opportunities
The second crop tour will follow a noon lunch. The tour will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Specific topics will be:
• Cover crops and intercropping in small-grain and row crops
• Practical applications for unmanned aerial vehicles
• Predicting wheat protein using canopy reflectance
• Soybean rows and plant population impact on white mold management
• Fungicide resistance of field pea and lentil
Field day visitors can also attend fruit, livestock and sustainable agriculture tours.
