The High Plains Ag Lab (HPAL) June Field Day and 50th (+1) Anniversary Celebration on Tuesday, June 15 will showcase current research at HPAL and recognize the past half-century of service to agriculture in the region.
Social distancing ruled out an in-person field day this June. However, the Virtual Field Day website has a collection of videos and other online presentations (such as narrated Powerpoints) that convey the same type of information that would have been available in person.
The COVID-19 pandemic is putting limits on public face-to-face programs, but Nebraska Extension will sponsor a variety of events in mid-June to share updates on the wheat variety trials and crop and livestock research conducted by University of Nebraska-Lincoln in western Nebraska.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln High Plains Ag Lab Field Day, scheduled for Thursday, June 20, will highlight UNL research on dryland crops, especially field pea and winter wheat, as well as grazing and forages.
