Field trial tours starting in the morning near Wyarno then onto the University of Wyoming Watt Agriculture Center at Sheridan College for additional tours and lunch are part of the Sheridan Research and Extension Center field day Saturday, June 14.
Landscape, grape and berry production presentations are in addition to field tours at the college.
The split location format is the same as last year.
“Members of the Sheridan R&E Center Advisory Board encouraged us to keep the mid-June field day similar to last year’s,” said Bret Hess, associate dean for research in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and director of the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station.
“We are excited to follow last year’s format and host the field day at two separate locations of the Sheridan R&E Center. The first half of the day will be devoted to field tours while the second half of the day will be a series of presentations.”
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. for the 9 a.m. field trial tours at the research and extension center near Wyarno, and registration starts at 10:30 a.m. for presentations, field trials and vineyard tours that begin at 11 a.m. at the UW Watt Agriculture Center on the college campus.
Lunch is provided beginning at noon, and RSVPs for lunch are requested by Monday, June 9.
