Michigan State University and the new West Central Michigan Research Station will host an AgBioResearch and MSU Extension Field Day from noon to 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 19.

The field day will allow the West Central Michigan Research Station to showcase its new facilities, ongoing research projects related to tree fruit, and future planting and research plans.

The field day will provide the first opportunity for guests to learn more about the research being done at the center as well as the many benefits the center will provide for the residents of the region.
