Virginia Small Grains Field Day

The Virginia Grain Producers Association, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia Small Grains Checkoff Board, and the Eastern Virginia Agricultural Research and Extension Center (AREC) are proud to host the 2020 Virginia Small Grains Field Day. This year's field day will be held at the Eastern Virginia Agricultural Research and Extension Center (AREC) in Warsaw, Virginia. The AREC has been located in Warsaw Since 1950 and focuses on breeding, variety testing, and cultural practices for corn, small grains, and soybeans. Today the Eastern Virginia Agricultural Research and Extension Center is the home base for the soybean breeding project and the center for small grain field research - making it the perfect location for the Field Day.

 

The event will include proximal sensing, introduction to Hybrid Rye, wheat, and barley varieties, HRW varieties, SRW varieties, and more. We will also have an exciting indoor program of speakers featuring updates from Virginia's agriculture leaders; information on small grain industry opportunities; all followed by a great meal with producers and industry members.

 

Thanks to our sponsors and the Virginia Small Grains Board, this is a free event for attendees. However, we do ask that you register for the event ahead of time.
