Water & Crops Field Day

Partnering with Producers & Industry – Tackling Today’s Challenges and Tomorrow’s Opportunities

This year’s Field Day is jointly sponsored by Nebraska Extension and the Nebraska Water Balance Alliance (NEWBA) and the Ogallala Aquifer Project. Water is one of Nebraska's most valuable natural resources. This Field Day offers a unique opportunity for anyone interested in water to learn and see irrigation practices and cropping systems on a farm scale that maintain or increase crop production while conserving water.

Participants will be able to interact with Nebraska Extension specialists and educators, and industry leaders on water issues that may affect their operations.  Approximately 35 commercial venders will be on hand to provide live demonstrations of how their products can help farmers manage their fields. UNL-TAPS updates, field tours and a TAPS Calcutta will also be included.

Site research tours in the afternoon will let you see management strategies and equipment up close with experts on hand to answer your specific questions.

While there is no cost to attend this year’s Water and Crops Field Day, registrations are needed by Monday, August 20, 2018, for planning & food purposes. Please complete the on-line registration form here.

Appreciation is expressed to our sponsors and exhibitors for their support and participation.

The Field Day will be held on Thursday August 23, 2018 at the West Central Research and Extension Center in North Platte, Nebraska.   Completed agenda will be posted here when it becomes available.
