A New Vision

Honoring a robust 65-year tradition, Agronomy Days has evolved into a season-long series of events. We invite stakeholders and community members to interact with experts at ACES research farms.

Scheduled events and pop-up activities include:

  • Field days – Tour research demonstration plots and hear from researchers on the latest findings.
  • Shade tree talks – Like traditional outreach talks, but with a less formal feel. Plus, light refreshments.
  • Tailgates – In-the-moment, behind-the-scenes looks at crop science research as it’s happening.

Be sure to check out ACES and crop sciences social media for more about Agronomy Days. For more information or to discuss hosting partner events, please contact Nick Seiter and Patrick Gavin.
