The Northwest Research and Outreach Center’s annual Crops and Soils Day event is scheduled for July 20 at the Northwest Research and Outreach Center’s (NWROC) Maintenance/Farm Operations Building located south of Polk County Hwy 71 on NWROC’s campus near the University of Minnesota Crookston Campus. The event highlights the quality of research at NWROC involving small grain yield and disease, drainage, hemp, insect management and sugar beet trials.

For the drainage component, Dr. Lindsay Pease will provide the performance of NWROC’s new subsurface drainage installation.

Dr. Pease’s performance will focus on how a new subsurface drainage system has been performing since its installation nearly three years ago. The presentation will cover several aspects of soil and water management, including moisture, compaction, soil carbon and nitrogen levels, and yield.
