The new ACRE (Ag Conservation, Research and Education) Farm started in 2022. Research plots were established that include: soybean planting date, soybean relative maturity, and soybean fungicide-insecticide-wheel traffic.
Come join us to explore the mystery of soil nematodes in both soybeans and corn. Discover ways to make soybean cropping decisions to improve our opportunities for successful wheat and cover crops. Learn from a panel of farmers about conservation successes and failures. What’s the weather forecast, and are we ready for the 2022 harvest weather? This field day will be a combination of general sessions and breakout sessions in the research plots with early and later arrival times. Come in the afternoon at 2:00 pm or later at 5:00 pm.
