The Agrilife Extension Center will highlight Wheat Field Day with a field day on May 17th at the Texas A&M Argilife facilities near Bushland. The field day is aimed to highlight wheat research's impact on the food supply.
"This year we want to invite the general public, along with producers, seed dealers and other key business associates, to come see our latest research in the fields and also see the difference it makes throughout our community and region," said Dr. Jackie Rudd, in a press release.
The presentations will cover water-use savings, wheat curl mite issues, residue management for water conservation, management issues and genomics. Once the presentation are over, Dr. Ron French and Dr. Ed Bynum will be on hand to answer any questions.
The event is being co-hosted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and West Texas A&M University.
The event is free and will include breakfast tacos, sponsored by the Texas Wheat Producers Board and a lunch sponsored by the USDA-ARS Ogallala Aquifer program.
Producers are welcomed to bring samples for one-on-one consolations.
