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.
What emerging issues will challenge crop and livestock producers in the High Plains? What research is going on at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and land-grant universities in response? What are the lessons from that research? A Feb. 21 meeting will explore these topics.
