We are hosting a field day here in Northeast Kansas. The pork chops will be great and might be worth the drive!
Here are some other dates and locations that may be closer to you and will get more details out as we get closer.
August 4th, Becks Seed, Effingham IL. We installed this system this spring and they are testing water efficiency with pivot vs drip vs tile sub irrigation. This is the local field day for the regional Beck’s plot
August 18th, University of IL, Champaign, IL. Dr. Fred Below has a wealth of knowledge and is always great to hear what he is learning with his drip system.
August 19th. Dan Luepkes field day, Oregon IL. Dan is in his second year of drip with 200 acres in the ground. He achieved 300 bpa yields last year and is looking at even higher yields this year! This will be a great opportunity to see the potential with SDI. 100 acres corn and 100 acres soybeans
August 30th-Sept 1st. Farm Progress show. Visit us in the Netafim booth.
Sept 2nd, Kelly Garret, Denison IA. Kelly has a challenging site in the Loess Hills of EC IA. The 74 acre site will show the adaptability of SDI, and how we can drive yields higher even in the rain fed corn belt.
Sept 3rd, (tentative) Tony Bosch, Steen, MN. This is the first year for this 80 acre system. Details in the works.
Sept 13-15th. Husker Harvest Days. Visit us in the Netafim booth.
Hope to see you along the way!
