The South Dakota State University Southeast Research Farm is hosting a virtual version of the farm’s annual field day. It is online July 7, at 2 p.m.

The field day includes a pre-recorded video of researchers discussing their projects including feedlot research, rye varieties, forages, soil quality, cover crops, interseeding, weed control, the SDSU oat breeding program and water quality. The video is accompanied with an hour-long webinar where researchers will present in-depth data about their projects. Webinar participants will have the chance to ask questions.
