COLUMBIA, Mo. – Droughts, floods, spring deluges, and late and early frosts are all possibilities that face Missouri farmers—sometimes in a matter of days. While no one can control the weather, you can learn the best ways to prepare for it and adapt to it at CAFNR’s Field Days across the state.
Researchers and extension agents from the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (CAFNR) at the University of Missouri will share research developments to enhance your operations, and help you save money and resources while conserving the natural environment. Whether it’s new strategies for stockpiling forages, establishing silvopastures, becoming an elderberry entrepreneur or improving soybean yields, the Field Days across the state will address your agricultural challenges and questions.
“Research presented at our field days is almost totally driven by those we serve,” said John Poehlmann, assistant director of the Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station. “Our scientists gather information about problems farmers are facing and work to solve those. Research is done in collaboration with farmers, industry, government and other universities in order to determine the best approach – economically, environmentally and socially – for the challenges that confront Missouri farmers.”
CAFNR has 17 unique research centers around the state, many of which host multiple educational events, workshops and tours throughout the year. The events and Field Days are also an excellent time to connect with friends and learn from Missouri’s growing agricultural community.
Save the date for the events in your area and explore innovative and practical developments in production agriculture, forestry, horticulture, natural resources management, soil fertility and more.
