Buses with AC will change MSU field day's atmosphere
MISSISSIPPI STATE –Mississippi State University officials will attempt to remove sweltering heat from the discussion topics at the Agronomic Crops Field Day on July 19, allowing participants to focus on the crop information.
MSU is providing air-conditioned shuttle buses for field tours in place of the open wagons typically used for these educational events. The tours will stop at cotton, corn, soybean, and other research and demonstration plots.
The field day will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. on the R.R. Foil Plant Science Research Center, commonly referred to as North Farm, located on Highway 182. This is the first field day on the farms near Starkville in several years. A lunch will be provided at the conclusion of the field tours.
Topics include soybean variety and hybrid demonstrations, irrigation issues, new transgenic cropping systems, agronomic and fertility demonstrations, and insect trials. Certified Crop Advisor credits will be offered.
