2020 MSU Virtual Field Days
Michigan State University (MSU) AgBioResearch and MSU Extension will host a series of virtual field day events called “From the Field” throughout the summer and into the fall of 2020. Ongoing agricultural research and outreach at the university will be presented to growers and producers on a variety of topics.
Field day events, normally hosted at the various MSU AgBioResearch Centers across Michigan, will be online due to COVID-19. The events will feature a combination of pre-recorded and live presentations to share information on several topics of statewide and regional interest in the areas of agriculture and natural resources.
Educational webinars and research updates will be provided by MSU researchers and MSU Extension Educators. The information provided at each virtual field day will be especially relevant to producers, educators and commodity experts.
Many of Michigan's commodity groups are sponsoring these efforts, including:
