Plan to attend a Small Grains Summer Plot Tour

University of Minnesota Extension is offering four on-farm Small Grain Summer Plot Tours in Northern MN in July to address small grain production issues, variety performance, and insect and disease pests.

These programs are designed to provide farmers and crop consultants the tools needed to make small grains a successful crop in their operation. This includes information on production agronomics, variety selection, disease identification, fungicide use, fertility, and economics. These programs are interactive and discussion based, featuring a tour of current research plots and discussion of on-farm experiences.
