Water management, seed production, phosphorous in sugar beets and soil erosion are some of the topics at the Powell Research and Extension Center (PREC) field day Friday, July 19.

Registration begins at 3:30 p.m. at the center at 747 Road 9, and the day concludes at 7 p.m., said Mike Moore, PREC interim director.

An open house format allows faculty, graduate students and extension educators to discuss and demonstrate projects at various stations. Transportation to each station is provided by the center, and participants can move between speakers, demonstrations and poster sessions at their leisure.

“Presentations will occur as a new group arrives, and in-depth, personalized interactions with presenters are the goal,” said Moore.

The day concludes with a poster session displaying the extensive research conducted at PREC. Food and beverages will be provided.
