North Dakota State University’s seven Research Extension Centers and the Agronomy Seed Farm will host virtual field days in July and August.
“In the interest of public health and safety, we will be modifying our field days to be held primarily virtually or with small-group tours this summer,” says Greg Lardy, NDSU vice president for Agricultural Affairs. “This will allow producers and other interested parties to receive updates on the research at the centers at their leisure in an environment of their choosing.”
Most of the field days consist of prerecorded videos that will go live on the date of the field day. Some will have a live Zoom meeting on their date (registration required to participate) and some field days will have both prerecorded videos and a Zoom call.
A few live events will happen for small groups of people with preregistration required.
During the field days research Extension Center and NDSU main campus scientists and Extension specialists will talk about a wide variety of topics.
