Pumpkin Day in Hancock County

Horticulture Educator, Kelly Allsup, says if you grow pumpkins then you should attend the Pumpkin field day hosted by the University of Illinois on September 6, 2013 10:00 AM – 2:00 p.m.

University of Illinois states 'There can be no substitute for first- hand experience with what varieties do well at your own farm and market, but variety trial reports can be of help by allowing one to see many different varieties grown under similar conditions. This way, a grower can see and compare varieties to one another and decide which one may work for their particular market.' Join us for a field day in Hancock County, Illinois to learn about pumpkin variety selection and many other topics.

Highlighted speakers. Mohammad Babadoost, Dr. Richard Weinzierl, of Dept of Crop Science, and Vince Lawson, Iowa State University. To register See you there.
