The 2023 SCAL Field Day is free to attend and will feature presentations on fertigation, nutrient and irrigation technology, and new research and strategies on controlling disease, insects and weeds in corn and soybean.
The free field day will include on-site demos of new technology and new herbicides for corn, soybean, popcorn and sorghum, as well as herbicide-resistant weed control options with various herbicide programs.
Current field trials and topics focusing on improved crop production and profitability will be featured during the free field day at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s South Central Agricultural Laboratory.
The middle to end of September is a good time to establish cover crops by broadcasting seeds into corn or soybean before harvest, which allows the crop to capture more sunshine, growing degree days and rainfall.
Research on cover crops, sensor-based nitrogen management, herbicide-resistant weeds, and the latest trials of insect, disease, and weed management will be in the spotlight Aug. 1 at the South Central Agricultural Lab Field Day. Multiple tours allow guests to focus on their interest areas.
