Spring Crops Field Day planned May 22 in southeast Kansas

Wheat and corn production will take center stage at the Kansas State University Southeast Agricultural Research Center’s Spring Crops Field Day, May 22 near Parsons.

The event, which focuses on crop opportunities and challenges in southeast Kansas, will be at K-State’s Parsons field, immediately south of U.S. Highway 400 on Ness Road (North 32nd St.).

“Our wheat performance test, which includes 10 soft and 20 hard varieties, will be a highlight of this field day,” said Lyle Lomas, head of the research center, “but topics about other crops will also be addressed.”

Registration and a sponsored breakfast start at 7:30 a.m., and the program begins at 8:30 a.m. In case of rain, the field day will be held indoors.

Topics and speakers include:

Tour of Wheat Variety Plots (30 varieties)—Kelly Kusel, research assistant, K-State Southeast Agriculture Research Center and seed company representatives;

Drought-Tolerant Corn Hybrids—Doug Shoup, K-State Southeast Area Extension agronomist;

Managing Wheat Aphids—Wendy Johnson, graduate research assistant, K-State Department of Entomology; and

Grain Market Outlook—Dan O’Brien, K-State Northwest Area Extension agricultural economist.

More information about the field day is available by calling 620-421-4826. Information about K-State’s Southeast Agricultural Research Center is available at
