  • Discussions of problem diagnosis, weed management, and variety selection, led by UMN Extension educators

The date and time were chosen based on a grower poll in which the vast majority of likely attendees voted for Monday, Nov. 1. Thank you for your input!

Currently we have no plans to record this field day. It is challenging to get a high quality recording of a live field day that is watchable afterward. To preserve a quality experience and privacy for the in-person attendees, we are unable to incorporate video recording.
