Cattle, sheep, traditional and alternative farm crops, weed control and fertilization are among research projects covered in the fourth annual Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station Field Days Bulletin.
This year’s bulletin also highlights studies on vegetable, herb and grape production in Wyoming as well as season-extension systems such as high and low tunnels.
“The intent of the WAES Field Days Bulletin is to demonstrate the vast array of activities that may be of interest to a wide variety of citizens,” said WAES director Bret Hess.
Articles summarize more than 90 completed or in-progress research projects at the four WAES research and extension centers near Laramie, Lingle, Sheridan and Powell; at the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture and Natural Resources; or at participating farms and ranches inWyoming.
“Authors address the high points of their specific projects and provide contact information in case readers wish to receive more in-depth information about a particular topic,” Hess said.
Some of these research projects were highlighted at WAES field days earlier this summer in Sheridan and Powell, and other studies will be discussed at two upcoming field days: Thursday, Aug. 21, at the James C.Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle and Thursday, Aug. 28, at the Laramie R&E Center.
