This week, on Thursday, June 29th the M.S.U. Northern Ag Research Center in Havre will be having their annual Field Day. I wanted to provide you with further details about that fantastic opportunity to meet with researchers and learn about current research topics as well as network with other growers.
Registration for the annual field day at the Northern Ag Research Center south of Havre- will begin on Thursday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. with the first set of tours beginning at 4:00 p.m. Tours will also be offered at 5:30 p.m. with a dinner scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
There are four possible tours to choose from for the afternoon and early evening. All tours will depart from the research center and conclude there and will last approximately 90 minutes. Please remember to bring hats, sunglasses and sunscreen as all tours are outside!Tour A will have stops where wheat streak mosaic virus, alternative cropping systems, nutrient management and cover crops are discussed. Tour B will focus on variety trials of winter and spring wheat, durum, and pulse crops. Tour C will focus on beef production issues.

At the conclusion of the tours dinner will be cooked and served by the Ag Committee of the Havre Area Chamber of Commerce.
