BYTIM FINE ummer is the time for field days and most of them in our area have passed but there are still a couple more coming up that I would like to let you know about. . On July 16, the East- ern Ag Research Cen- ter (EARC) will hold their annual irriga- tion field day. This will take place here at the Extension/EARC building and will begin at 9 am. Some of the tour stops (I don’t have room to place ev- erything in here) in— clude a look at pulse diseases, the hemp study, sugar beet re- search, a weed update and much more.

A catered lunch will be provided for all attendees. July 18 is the date for the annual Swank Farm Tour.
