The Michigan Wheat Program invites you to participate in their annual Summer Field Day on Wednesday, June 14, 2023. This highly anticipated event will take place at the MSU Plant Pathology Research Center in Lansing, MI, and promises to deliver valuable insights into the world of wheat farming.

The day begins with on-site check-in and a delightful continental breakfast at 8:15 a.m., followed by informative wagon tours of the plot presentations starting at 9 a.m. Led by respected MSU professors and research staff, these field stops will cover a wide range of essential topics, including weed and disease control, high-management wheat production, disease-resistant varieties, and wheat agronomy. This year, participants can also enjoy an exciting addition to the program: an afternoon guided walking tour at the Mason Research Farm in Mason, featuring various research plots and variety trials.

During the event, renowned experts such as Dr. Jan Byrne of the MSU Plant Diagnostics Center and wheat systems specialist Denis Pennington will be available to provide diagnostic evaluations and offer insights into the current crop. Additionally, RUP and CCA credits will be awarded for attending the program.

Jeffery Krohn, chairman of the Michigan Wheat Program board and a wheat farmer himself, emphasizes the unique opportunity the Summer Field Day presents for farmers to witness research plots firsthand, engage with experts, and exchange experiences with fellow growers. By participating in this event, attendees can gain valuable knowledge, ask important questions, and potentially contribute to shaping future research proposals.
