EAST LANSING, Mich. – Members of the Michigan agriculture industry and others are invited to tour several of the Michigan State University (MSU) research facilities this summer during the annual field day festivities.
MSU scientists will present findings from some of their current research ongoing across the state. Topics range from sustainable insect and disease prevention to the latest in agriculture technology.
Mark your calendars with the following dates:
Further details on these field day events will be available at the MSU AgBioResearch Centers website.
Also, MSU will host its first MSU Agriculture Innovation Day Aug. 24 at the Saginaw Valley Research and Extension Center in Frankenmuth. This year’s focus is on soils, with experts addressing soil quality, nutrient management, compaction and tile technology in nine different sessions. Please note that this event will take the place of the regular field day held annually at this research location.
MSU has a network of 13 outlying research and Extension centers across the state. The facilities are located so that field trials can be conducted in similar types of soils, elevations and climates of the surrounding farms and regions.
