From 9am to 3pm on Thursday, June 23, Penn State Extension is hosting Farming for Success, an agronomic field day for farmers, industry representatives, and other professionals in the agricultural field.

Participants can choose from 3 different tracks, which will feature a wide range of crop production and best management practices workshops, including sessions on “New and Alternative Crops,” “Farms of the Future” (conservation, soil health, and sustainable yields), “Advances in Equipment Technology” (guidance, GPS, mapping), “Maximizing Your Growing Season,” and more! The event will be held at the Southeast Agricultural Research and Extension Center (1446 Auction Road, Manheim, Pennsylvania, 17545), a 120-acre Penn State research farm in Lancaster County. The deadline for registration is Tuesday, June 21, 2016, with a discounted price of $10.

Jeff Graybill, Penn State Extension agronomy educator, said, “The Farming For Success Field Day offers a broad range of things to see and do; from some of the latest research at Penn State to presentations on important ag issues and trends in technology. It’s also a great day to rub elbows with friends and colleagues within the ag community here in central PA.”

Farming for Success is planned and organized by members of Penn State Extension Field and Forage Crop Team, supported by the PA No-till Alliance, the PA Corn Growers Association, the PA Soybean Board, and numerous local agricultural businesses.
