The Hundley-Whaley Research Center will host its annual twilight tour from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 22 at the Center in Albany. The event is free and open to the public.
This year’s twilight tour will include a wagon ride through a handful of alternative agriculture presentations. Those discussions will feature beekeeping, mushroom growing, maple syrup harvesting and monarchs. All stops on this specific tour will focus on different practices that individuals can take part in at home.

Peter Scharf, a professor of plant sciences, will discuss nitrogen and cover crops. Wayne Flanary and Andy Luke, both MU Extension agronomy specialist, will discuss marestail control in soybeans and the sensitivity of several crops to herbicides, respectively.
