Field meetings for growers and field personnel are planned for various sites across Michigan. The purpose of these informal gatherings is to visit field trials and Michigan State University Extension variety performance sites, and compare notes on the season to-date. It is a good time to touch base on current agronomic challenges to field crops in general as well. There is no fee associated with these meetings.
