Carrie Laboski, Professor & Extension Soil Fertility/Nutrient Management Specialist
As usual Agronomy/Soils Field Day has a fantastic program lined up! Phil Townsend will discuss new frontiers in remote sensing for agriculture during the lunch program. A special tour focusing on UW research on remote sensing in agriculture is slated for the afternoon. Other tours will include recent research on soil fertility & management, grain production systems, forage production system and pest management.
The SnapPlus team and Nutrient and Pest Management Program along with the UW Soil & Forage Analysis Lab will have display booths to visit between tours. The Badger Crops Club will provide lunch ($5 donation).
The field day will be held at the Arlington Ag Research Station beginning at 8:30 am and concluding at 2:45 pm. This year all attendees will need to sign a waiver before they can ride tour wagons. Please come early to help facilitate this new process. Program details can be found in the flyer.
