K-State Tillage Field Day planned for June 13, Garden City
K-State Research and Extension will host a Tillage Field Day on Wednesday, June 13 to share research findings regarding no-till and several tillage systems. Crop producers’ struggles to manage herbicide-resistant weeds are prompting many who’d adopted no-till systems to consider reverting back to tilling their fields. K-State welcomes producers to come view the benefits and costs of incorporating tillage in their cropping system.
The field day will be at the Southwest Research-Extension Center, 4500 East Mary St. in Garden City, beginning with registration at 10 a.m. Lunch, compliments of several sponsors, will be served.
Topics to be covered include:
- View a five-year study comparing no-till to occasional tillage.
- Weed management, agronomics, soil health, and economics of long-term no-till and tillage systems.
- Company demonstration of tillage equipment operating in the field.
