Michigan State University AgBioResearch and Extension staff will be hosting a series of meetings throughout the Upper Peninsula to report on the crop variety trials that were hosted at the Upper Peninsula Research and Extension Center this past year. In partnership with Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, researchers in Chatham were able to test a host of varieties concentrating on small grains and forages. Production data and crop potential in the U.P. will be explored. Specific crops highlighted include malting barley, spring and winter wheat, oats, field peas, and various forage crops. Please mark your calendars for the meeting held closest to you. These meetings are open to the public and are free of charge. However, please RSVP so that we can plan accordingly for refreshments. We hope to see you this winter!
