2019 Agronomy Fall Field Day, September 20 in Manhattan


The 2019 growing season presented many weather-related challenges to producers in Kansas and neighboring states.  In response to these challenges, the focus of the 2019 Agronomy Fall Field Day is “Building Resiliency in Agronomy”. The field day is scheduled for Friday, September 20, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Agronomy North Farm in Manhattan. The event is free to attend and will conclude with a sponsored lunch for all attendees.

Topics will focus on understanding how different agronomic practices and technologies can aid producers in building a more resilient production system. An overview of the topics includes:

  • Resilient soils through conservation practices
  • Wheat genetics and technology
  • Sorghum genetics and resiliency: Delivering traits from seed bank to seed bag
  • Crop physiology and extreme temperatures
  • Managing variability in the field
  • Kansas Mesonet and climate data in Kansas


More detailed information concerning the program topics, speakers, and sponsors will be featured in an upcoming eUpdate. The online registration link is now open at: http://bit.ly/AgronFieldDay2019
