Nebraska Extension in Perkins & Chase Counties

Local Interest

View field trials of field peas, winter wheat, lentils, chickpeas, canola, forage crops, and cover crops at seven Nebraska Extension field days this June. The events will provide a diverse learning experience and great networking opportunity for farmers and agribusinesses.

During the field visits participants will be able to learn more about different varieties of wheat, field peas, chickpeas and forages. Depending on the location, field visits will also include demonstrations of other specialty crops (lentils, winter canola, forages, cover crops) and effects that different agronomic practices (planting dates, seeding rates, fertilizer management, etc.) have on crop yield and yield quality.
