SDSU Extension Wheat Walks
May 25 – June 1, 2017
SDSU Extension will host Wheat Walks in the Pierre and Wall areas on May 25, 2017 and in the Clark area on June 1, 2017. The goal of these events is to provide wheat producers with the latest information to effectively manage their crop.
Presentations & Activities
SDSU Extension experts will be on hand at each location, providing expertise in plant pathology, weed control, entomology, soil fertility and agronomic information. Each specialist will give a brief presentation, followed by time for discussion and questions for the specialists, one-on-one or in small groups.
Those attending are welcome to bring samples from their fields for the agronomists to assess. Representatives from the SD Wheat Commission and SD Wheat Inc. will also be present. CCA credits have been applied for.
Attendance is free!
Through grant funding from the South Dakota Wheat Commission there will be no charge to attend any of the Wheat Walk locations. Refreshments will be provided by South Dakota Wheat Inc.
