Mark Your Calendars Now for the 2002 Agronomy Field Days

June 21, 2002
Each summer, the Department of Crop Sciences sponsors several field days at multiple locations throughout Illinois. These events offer a great opportunity for members of the agricultural community to interact with scientists who are conducting research at these sites. Topics at each location focus on important crop production and protection issues facing farmers. The presentations are offered in a very informal setting, and participants have a great opportunity to get their questions answered by faculty and staff of the Department of Crop Sciences. The Ewing Field Day is organized by the University of Illinois Extension crop systems educators who are located in southern Illinois. The Research and Education Center at Belleville is operated by Southern Illinois University. Following is logistical information for each field day. If you have any additional questions about these events, please call Sharon Conatser, Department of Crop Sciences, at (217)333-4424. The contact person for each event also is provided. Please give any of these folks a call if you would like more specific information about a given program.--Mike Gray
