Western ARS Agronomy Field Day, Wednesday July 17, 2019

The Western Agricultural Research Station Agronomy Field Day will be held July 17th. The station is mostly planted but everything went in on the edge – as you saw it on your farm too. Hear our researchers thoughts and recommendations on how to manage this interesting season.

A couple of items we will walk through are:

  • A herbicide mode of action demo – you will get a chance to walk through the crop and weed screen with Mark and Tony to see what kills what these days – it’s not as easy as it was twenty years ago!
  • A cover crop and emergency summer forage demonstration. Hear Rory talk through options and share the economic value of the choices.

Held at the OSU Western Agricultural Research Station at 7721 South Charleston Pike, South Charleston (https://oardc.osu.edu/facility/western-agricultural-research-station)
