NDSU Extension's annual crop management field school is scheduled for Wednesday, June 19, starting at 9 a.m. at the Carrington Research Extension Center.
The school will provide updates on crop, pest and soil management recommendations using hands-on training in field demonstration plots and research trials.
The program is designed for crop advisers, but also will be beneficial for farmers.
School instructors include NDSU crop specialists and researchers Greg Endres, Andrew Friskop, Joe Ikley, Lesley Lubenow, Mike Ostlie and Abbey Wick.
Preregistration is required, and 50 participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants will receive reference materials, refreshments and a noon meal. Certified crop advisers will receive five continuing education units in crop pest, and soil and water management.
For more details and preregistration information, visit the Carrington Research Extension Center website, or contact the center at 701-652-2951. A completed preregistration form and $100 fee is required by June 14.
As a student focused, land grant, research institution, we serve our citizens.
