The High Plains Ag Lab Field Day, scheduled for Thursday, June 21, will highlight UNL research on dryland crops, especially field pea and winter wheat, as well as grazing and forages. View field trials and hear reports from researchers.
A variety of winter and pulse crops will be featured at a series of seven field days to be held across the state this summer. The crops exhibited and speaker presentations will be customized to local needs.
Learn about and engage with the expanding pulse crop industry at two events being held in western Nebraska this month: the Pulse Crops Workshop Jan. 17 at Bridgeport and the Pulse Crops Expo Jan. 18 at Grant. Check the agendas and register for one or both events by Jan. 16.
The 2017 university field pea variety trials have been posted to CropWatch and include results from seven plots with up to 25 varieties at each location. The varieties are grouped in three categories: older, robust lines; newer, higher yielding lines just coming to market; and new lines in development.
Field day participants will be able to view field pea varieties and learn about rotational benefits and agronomic practices to profitably grow field peas and integrate them with existing cropping systems.
