The 2016 Ag PhD Field Day is Thursday, July 28, 2016.

The goal of the Ag PhD Field Day on our farm is for you to learn as much as you can in one day about new and current technologies so you can increase your profits and yields on your farm. We will have lots of field plots and demos, educational sessions, corn & soybean yield champs from across the country speaking to you about their strategies, and some hands-on activities that will hopefully make this day a great learning experience for you.

Mark your calendar today for the Ag PhD Field Day!
