Since the Hill and Furrow blog began in April 2012, a conscious effort has been made to keep its author (me) in the shadows so as to not distract from article content.
However as Friday, June 23 will be my last day at University of Illinois Extension, major changes will be coming to the Hill and Furrow.
I'd like to thank the blog's loyal subscribers and encourage you to not unsubscribe just yet, as there are a couple of more articles that have been scheduled to post throughout the 2017 growing season and my replacement is likely to start posting after he/she is hired.
Writing articles for this blog has been a labor of love and I will truly miss it, the Northwestern Illinois Ag R&D Center and the center's staff: Research Specialist Marty Johnson and Research Agronomist Greg Steckel.
Incidentally, the research center's 36th annual field day will be held on Wednesday, July 26 with buses leaving the center at 8 AM sharp. Click here for further information regarding the day's topics and speakers.
