Field Day is back again this year

Consumers, farmers and those interested in ag business are invited to an annual event.

The University of Missouri's Greenley Memorial Research Center is holding the 36th annual Field Day on Tuesday, August 6.

Registration and breakfast is from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. with the event running from 8 a.m. to Noon with a free lunch afterwards.

People can take tours and learn a variety of subjects in the agriculture field, from crops to pest management to beef and forage.

The center enjoys continuing this yearly tradition to help showcase the latest innovations in agriculture and how it can be beneficial to those who work in the field.

"New research and new technologies that we're looking at, hopefully prior to when they are available to the average farm. They can get a view of these and help them in making decisions on to implement those in their operations," said Greenley Research Center Superintendent Randall Smoot.

Smoot also wants those who are in the ag business to learn something new and different to get ahead for next year.

"We can look at practices of management systems that can make a producer more efficient, increase his yields, and improve his bottom line and in turn improve his style of living," Smoot said.

Other topics that will be discussed at the event will be loss of nitrogen levels in corn, how to waste less hay and micronutrient management.
