FARGO, N.D. – There’s nothing like getting in the field, but when that’s not possible there are virtual field days.
North Dakota State University's seven research extension centers and agronomy seed farm will host virtual field days in July and August.
"In the interest of public health and safety, we will be modifying our field days to be held primarily virtually or with small-group tours this summer," said Greg Lardy, NDSU vice president for Agricultural Affairs. "This will allow producers and other interested parties to receive updates on the research at the centers at their leisure in an environment of their choosing.

Lardy said prerecorded videos will be shot on location so producers can see the researchers' work, and scientists and extension specialists will talk about a wide variety of current topics.
"We're glad we can use various technologies to share with producers, even during the pandemic," he said.
