2014 Greenley Research Center Field Day Aug. 5
At Greenley Research Center’s free Field Day starting at 7 a.m. on Aug. 5, a demonstration on the installation of a drip irrigation system will be featured in addition to educational talks and tours at the center operated by the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (CAFNR) at the University of Missouri.
Three separate tours geared toward livestock farmers and crop producers will include topics of managing nematodes in corn and soybeans, an overview of the new dicamba and 2,4-D soybeans and recommendations to control horseweed and waterhemp. For cattle ranchers beneficial talks will be offered covering utilization of cover crops for grazing, and an update of fixed-time AI Field Trials. Row crop farmers can learn about nitrogen management in flooded corn and impregnated fertilizers.
An optional tour of Greenley’s Drainage and Sub-irrigation fields will be offered with information on how managed drainage systems affect crop production and improve water quality.
The 37th annual Field Day starts with breakfast and registration at 7 a.m. Tours start at 8 a.m. and conclude at noon when lunch is served.
