MU Southwest Center to hold field day


From dealing with drought to beekeeping, the Southwest Research Center Field Day will showcase a breadth of agricultural research and practice from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sept. 14.

The Southwest Research Center, which is located four miles west of Mt. Vernon Mo. on Hwy. H, is part of a network of University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources centers across Missouri conducting research benefiting agricultural producers and natural resource managers.

Attendees can learn from tours, which cover dairy, beef, forages, horticulture, vineyards, entomology, agroforestry, vegetable and fruit production, nut trees and beekeeping. Tours will be within walking distance of the headquarters, except for the dairy tour. Wagons for the dairy tour will leave every hour.

More than 30 MU researchers and extension faculty will share research results, offer advice for current growing conditions and answer questions.

Free lunch will be provided for the first 1,000 attendees.

Big producers and backyard gardeners alike can benefit from dozens of presentations, which will provide strategies for attendees to improve production, cut costs, manage pests and deal with drought. Andy Thomas, research assistant professor in plant sciences, will lead two walking tours covering a variety of horticultural research and tips for growing trees and shrubs.
