The University of Idaho is teaming up with several industry giants for a first ever collaborative field day. The June 19th event will take place at Lindsay Creek Vineyards in Lewiston. The U of I’s Doug Finkelnburg said by working with CHS Primeland and Limagrain Cereal Seeds, a larger group of growers can attend, which means more eyes on the good research taking place.
“We’re going to be looking at public and private varieties of winter wheat at a nursery. We will be touring a physiological leaf spot study, we’re going to be looking at a winter oat study, a variety trial with winter oats.”
Finkelnburg says the field day will also include a demonstration of a new coaxium wheat system. He added so much going on for the average grower, so it can be challenging to get to all of the field days or educational opportunities.
“Why not try to do something different this time, if we can join forces in a constructive way, with some other interested groups, like Primeland and Limagrain Cereal Seeds, why not see if we cannot all try to draw eyes and collaborate, and benefit each other a little bit.”
