31st Annual NWIARDC Field Day a success

The drought conditions were on people's minds Wednesday at the 31st annual NWIARDC Field Day. Local farmers and I were interviewed about the drought by WQAD, Channel 8's Reporter Mr. John David for the evening news.

All told, 87 people toured the Research Center and listened to presentations about agricultural tiling, soil nutrient recommendations, getting high yielding soybeans, and foliar fungicides in corn (Figures).

Throughout the coming weeks, information from these presentations will be posted to the website.
