Michigan State University Extension and the Michigan Potato Industry Commission would like to invite all producers, agribusinesses, and community members to join us for a day on the Montcalm Research Farm!

The 2024 Potato Field Day will be held at the Montcalm Research Center on Thursday, August 8, located at 4629 W. McBride Road, in Lakeview, MI.

This year’s field day will first feature a topic of water stewardship and irrigation efficiencies. This session will showcase the modernizing of well heads to include Midwest Water Stewards discussing the benefits of irrigation improvements and stream gauge monitoring.

MSU Extension irrigation experts will also be on site with the MiWATT tool and will discuss how irrigation improvements can create efficiencies in production systems.

Harvest and post-harvest handling of potatoes will also be featured. A demonstration of proper handling techniques will be showcased to improve quality and storability of potatoes. Fumigation and early-die management will also be discussed through the compost demonstration trial.

Lunch is provided after field day around 12pm! The field day will conclude following lunch. The
MPIC research meeting will take place at the Douglas Township Hall in Entrican following the field day.

We hope to see you there!
