The MSU Saginaw Valley Research and Extension Center will host its annual field day and research tour Aug. 21 beginning at 9 a.m. Topics of discussion include sugar beets, dry edible beans and other crops studied in the Saginaw Valley region.

Tour participants will be transported by wagon to various research plots, where MSU researchers and extension educators will present information on topics from variety development to insect control.

Following these sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss various topics of interest with Fred Poston, MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources dean, and Kelly Millenbah, associate dean and director of academic and student affairs, along with MSU AgBioResearch Director Doug Buhler and MSU Extension Director Tom Coon. This open forum, called “What’s Now? What’s Next?”, is aimed at providing attendees a chance to provide input on how the CANR can continue to help move Michigan agriculture forward through research, education and outreach. The session runs from 12 - 2 p.m. 

Registration for the tour is $20 per person and begins at 8 a.m. The “What’s Now? What’s Next?” portion of the event is free.
