The Mountain Research Station is having a general station field day and you are welcome to come. The event will start at 2:30 with opening remarks from administrators from NC State and the NC Dept of Agriculture & Consumer Services. That will be followed by presentations on crop management during dry conditions, pasture/feed management during drought, and a pollinator update. From 4:00 to 5:30 there will be two tours to choose from. One will focus on beef production management and research. The other tour will be of our organic research unit, a pumpkin variety trial, and a study on biodegradable plastic mulch. The event will end with a supper sponsored by Carolina Farm Credit and Haywood Soil and Water.
This will be just a quick early season overview of our organic research on tomatoes, cucurbits, and peppers and our initial biodynamic work on peppers. We will also have a field day and workshop focused solely on our studies in late July.
Here is an agenda for June 30. Hope to see you there.
