K-State’s Southwest Research-Extension Center invites producers, allied industry representatives and anyone interested in agriculture to attend this year’s Spring Field Day on May 28 at 4500 E. Mary Street in Garden City.

Registration will begin at 4:30 p.m. The program and tour of wheat, canola and annual forage variety plots will start at 5 p.m., followed by a meal sponsored by industry partners. Logan Simon, K-State southwest area agronomist; Mike Stamm, K-State agronomist and canola breeder; and John Holman, K-State cropping systems agronomist; will discuss the annual forages, canola and wheat variety plots at the location and how they have performed under this year’s challenging growing conditions.

Field days are an opportunity for growers to talk with researchers and Extension specialists about what they have observed in the field and take home actionable insights for their operations.
