Everything from food grade sorghum to wheat breeding to cover crops and more are features of the 2013 Fall Field Day planned for Wednesday, Sept. 4 at the Agricultural Research Center in Hays.
A highlight of the day is a tour and presentation on the center’s new greenhouse and the benefits it will bring to K-State researchers and ultimately producers.
