Head to Orr Agricultural Center July 20 for an agronomy-focused field day

As summer 2022 rolls on, so do the events of this year’s University of Illinois Agronomy Days. Farmers in the know are keeping a close watch on the summer-long calendar of events providing practical, research-based information that can improve yield, input management, and sustainability on the farm.

Among the offerings is a July 20 field day at the Orr Agricultural Research and Demonstration Center. The free event features presentations by College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences researchers during plot tours on the farm.

The event runs from 9 to 11:30, with lunch following the plot tours. Attendees must RSVP by email to lukem@illinois.edu or call (217) 236-4911. Continuing Education Units for Certified Crop Advisors will be offered.

The Orr Center is located at 37804 State Hwy 104 in Baylis, approximately 4 miles northwest of Perry. Attendees should check in at the Crop Science shop a little before 9 a.m.
