MU Research Farms Set Summer Field Day Dates
COLUMBIA - Field days are now set at various University of Missouri centers and farms for the rest of the year.
Such field days allow producers to hear the latest Missouri agricultural research from state and regional specialists. They also feature bleacher-wagon tours of research plots and extension demonstrations.
"It is important for producers to stay current with accurate information," said Marc Linit, associate dean for research and extension. "They can do that at our field days across the state."
All events are open to the public and free, except for the Pest Management Day, which has a $10 fee to cover costs of a research-plot book and lunch. This is the only event that requires advance registration.
Each of the farms has a website that will give field day programs closer to the actual events. See aes.missouri.edu for links to farm websites.
