An agronomic crops field day will be held at the R.R. Foil Plant Science Research Center in Starkville, MS on July 19, 2012 from 9 to 11 a.m.  The field day will begin at 9 a.m. with field tours concluding at 11 a.m. Lunch will be provided and will be served immediately upon completion of field tours.  Given the weather conditions usually encountered during the second to third week of July, guests at the R.R. Foil Plant Science Research Center field day will be shuttled to cotton, corn, soybean, and other research plots on air conditioned buses typically used for shuttle service through the campus of Mississippi State University. 

A broad array of projects will be highlighted at this field day including, but not limited to:  cotton, corn, and soybean variety/hybrid demonstrations; irrigation impacts on crop production; new transgenic cropping systems including dicamba tolerant cotton; agronomic and fertility demonstrations; various insect efficacy trials; as well as many more.  A more detailed agenda will be available in the coming weeks.  Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) credits will be offered.  Mark your calendars now for the Agronomic Crops Field Day to be held on July 19 at the R.R. Foil Plant Science Research Center near the campus of Mississippi State University.
