UNL extension educator Keith Glewen says farmers are invited to the Research and Development Center near Mead next Wednesday (August 26th) to get a good look at what’s going on with their dirt.
Glewen says, “It’s a day that’s exclusively dedicated to addressing the physical, chemical and biological properties of soil.”
The second workshop, next Thursday, will be dedicated to late season crop production.
“The affect of management practices and weather conditions and the combinations of those two on the production of corn and soybeans,” Glewen says. “We’ve got ears of corn to look at and we’ve got pods to look at.”
The workshops begin each day at 8 AM. Contact the Nebraska Extension to register.
