Panhandle Agriculture Research and Technology Tour

August 29, 2018 @ 8:45 am - 4:00 pm

With the help of the Nebraska Dry Bean Growers Association and the Nebraska Corn Board, the Panhandle Research and Extension Center will host an innovative field day, using a new format, on Aug. 29 at the Panhandle Center, 4502 Avenue I, Scottsbluff.

The Panhandle Ag Research and Technology Tour will feature demonstrations of new equipment and technology in common irrigated crops of the Panhandle. The tour will run from 8:45 a.m. until 4 p.m., with repeating sessions occurring throughout the day. These sessions will be longer than previous tours, giving time for questions and an opportunity for visitors to walk through the plots.

Anybody who can’t come for the entire day is free to come for any part of the event, and stay as long as they can. The tour is intended to be accessible to farmers and other ag professionals during a busy time of the year. Sponsors include the Dry Bean Growers and the Nebraska Corn Board.

For more information about the tour please contact the event organizer, Nevin Lawrence, Integrated Weed Management Specialist, at (308) 632-1230 or nlawrence2@unl.edu.

Registration begins at 8:15 a.m., with welcome and introductions at 8:45 a.m. The remainder of the morning will consist of field tours from 9 a.m. until noon. Each stop on the field tour will last 45 minutes, and will be repeated throughout the morning. Tour trailers will transport the tour participants, but shuttles will be available for those who can only attend part of the tour.
