Learn the latest in agronomic research being conducted by University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers at the 2021 Agronomy and Soils Field Day hosted by UW-Madison Departments of Agronomy and Soil Science in collaboration with the Arlington Agricultural Research Station on Aug. 25, 2021.
The field day has a new format that consists of a tour with two speakers at each of six stops. The tour begins with a shot gun start, meaning participants will be able to attend all 12 presentations that highlight emerging technology, crops, and cropping practices that will improve the sustainability and resilience of our cropping systems.
UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences researchers and Division of Extension specialists will present at the various stops. The field tour begins at 8:30 a.m., topics are:
Cost Effective Soil Moisture and Carbon Monitoring Using Sensor Technology
Evaluating Corn N Need Across Wisconsin
Sustainable Intensification Using Cover Crops
Mighty Microbes: An Integral Component of Soil Health
Kernza Intermediate Wheatgrass: A New Perennial Grain and Forage Crop for Wisconsin
Soil Health, Micronutrients, and Small Grain, Oh My!
Can We Stop Carbon Loss from Soils?
Maximum Yield vs. Economic Optimum Yield: How $7 Corn Influences Management?
Integrated Weed Management in Corn and Soybeans
Killing Pasture Weeds and Not Harming Clover: Experience with a Soon To Be Registered “Clover-Safe” Herbicide
Using Entomopathic Nematodes for Corn Rootworm Control
Research-based Solutions for Disease Prediction in Field Crops
The field day starts at 8 a.m. with check-in and concludes at 12 p.m. In the event of rain, the field day will be postponed until Thursday, Aug. 26. Registered attendees will be emailed by 7 p.m. on Aug. 24 if the field day is being postponed. The Arlington Ag Research Station is located at N695 Hopkins Rd, Arlington. Watch for signs on Hwy 51 about 5 miles south of Arlington. The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences will make a reasonable effort to provide accommodations for participants with disabilities when notified in advance. Request a disability accommodation by Aug. 15 when registering. Efforts will be made to meet same day requests to the extent possible.
