MOUNT VERNON –The WSU Mount Vernon NWREC Annual Field Day will be held July 11. Faculty and graduate students will host a walking tour of some of the nearly 150 acres of active research plots at the Center. The event is free to the public, and starts at 3 p.m. Two tractor-driven wagons will be available for non-walkers. Hear about current research projects and learn how work at the Center impacts growers, consumers, agricultural businesses and local economies throughout the region. Featured talks this year will be on soil health, vegetable seed production and potato disease management. Additional presentations will include cider fermentation, vegetable grafting, weed management, plant insect pest management and small fruit production. Graduate students will present their projects and be available for questions and discussion. Participants are invited to stay and enjoy a locally prepared barbecue and meet Dr. André Wright, WSU Dean of the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resources Sciences (CAHNRS), and other WSU CAHNRS administrators, including Associate Deans, Department Chairs, and Research & Extension Center Directors.
