Eastern North Carolina Small Grain Field Day May 12th
2016 Eastern North Carolina Small Grain Field Day
Haslin Farms, Belhaven NC
This year, the weather has not been good for our wheat crop. The plots at our field day site have suffered from this, and to be honest, don’t look to good. But there is still a reason why you should plan to attend if you are serious about wheat production.
We are framing a large part of our event around the following question:
“What Happened To My Wheat This Year, Why Did It Happen, and What Can I Do About It Next Year?”
Come out for breakfast that morning, then jump on the wagons at 8 a.m. for a tour through the field. We will have ice cream and cookies, too. You will also meet Dr. Angela Post, our new Small Grains Extension Specialist. We will be done around 10:00 a.m. so you can get back to work.
Directions: From Pantego, head east on Hwy 264 toward Belhaven, then turn left on Beech Ridge Road (just after crossing the railroad tracks), travel 4 miles and look for the “Field Day” sign near the water tower. Turn left on the farm path and head due north until you see us!
