Please join us at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Gudmundsen Sandhills Laboratory for the 22nd Annual Open House, August 25, 2021. This year’s Open House will be a hybrid format with our traditional in-person event held at GSL along with being live streamed online webinar. The online webinar will only cover the morning sustainability topics.  Activities, demonstrations and commercial exhibits are planned so our guests can come and go as they please throughout the day.  AGENDA

The UNL TAPS Summer Event was held on June 24, 2021 at West Central Research Extension and Education Center.  The day brought agricultural producers and company representatives together to learn more about sensors, crop diagnostic analysis and marketing insights.  This first time event featured the "Agronomic Olympics" that tested producers on ther knowledge and abiltiy to identify various weeds, as well as other subjects.  The workshop proved to be informative as well as a fun event.  Daran Rudnick said the event was meant to highlight technology that TAPS participants and partners could use in managing crops as part of the competition as well as their own private operation.
