Field Day is a collaborative effort involving all of the Center staff, visiting researchers, and many growers and grower groups in the region. The general purpose is to allow visitors a chance to see the research IREC is conducting and interact with the researchers. We appreciate the opportunity to share these research programs with members of the community, many of whom have helped sponsor the research and this event.
Research studies showcased during the 2017 field day included:
- Evaluation of Alternatives to Soil Fumigants and Diallyl Disulphide for Management of While Rot,
- Improving Malting Barley Nitrogen Management using Drone Measurements,
- Use of Palisade PGR to Prevent Barley Lodging in Tulelake,
- Alternative Grazing Forages/New Crop Introduction: Kura Clover,
- Evaluation of Small Grains Grown under Dryland Conditions,
- Forage Barley Breeding,
- Development of Small Grain Varieties in California, Integrating Cover Crops into Organic Potato Production,
- Preventing Maggot Damage in Processing Onions,
- Alfalfa Variety Development,
- Low Lignan Alfalfa and Roundup Ready Alfalfa Updates.
