“What Happened to My Wheat This Year, Why Did it Happen, and What Can I Do About It Next Year?” 

Come out to the Small Grain Field Day to learn what has happened to the wheat and practices that you can do next year in order to make it a better wheat year. You will also be able to meet out new Small Grains Extension Specialist, Dr. Angela Post!

We will start bright and early with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. in the field followed by 4 tour stops, ice cream and cookies and will be adjourned by 10:00 a.m. so you can go back to work!
