A chance to ask questions of ISU Soil Fertility and Soybean Researchers is a central part of the central part of this year's fall Northwest Iowa Experimental Farm Field Day set for the evening of Sept. 2 at the farm near Calumet in southern O'Brien County.
Palle Pedersen, ISU Extension Soybean Agronomist, will be discussing his research on the impacts of soybean yield, along with other soybean issues. Antonio Mallarino, ISU professor of Agronomy, focusing on soil fertility research, will be sharing the early results of surface runoff data being collected in a unique research project being conducted at the NW Research Farm. As always, both will be answering questions about current issues of concern asked by field day participants.
Evening field day activities get underway at 6:30 p.m. Attendance is free! The farm is located 1/4 mile east of Highway 59 approximately two miles south of Calumet. Contact your nearest county Extension office for additional information.
