The Virginia Grain Producers Association, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia Small Grains Checkoff Board, and Featherstone Farm Seed are proud to host the 2017 Virginia Small Grains Field Day. This year’s field day will be hosted at Featherstone Farm where you will have the opportunity to visit with exhibitors, participate in the field plot tours, hear from industry experts, and enjoy a lunch with fellow producers.

 

This year's field plot tours include: wheat varieties, small grain forage variety evaluation, malting barley varieties and management, weed control in small grains, small grain disease management, small grain insect pest management. We will have an exciting program of speakers featuring updates from Virginia's agriculture leaders; a presentation from Proximity Malt on their new facility and grain buying plans; a presentation on bread wheat and hulless barley opportunities, and more. The event will end with a barbecue luncheon with producers and industry members.

 

Thanks to our sponsors and the Virginia Small Grains Board, this is a free event for attendees.
