Lind Field Day

People listening to presentation in a crop field tourPlease join us on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at the WSU Dryland Research Station in Lind to learn about the outstanding research WSU faculty, staff and students are conducting to support dryland producers in eastern Washington. This field day event also serves as a tremendous opportunity to network with growers, industry representatives, commissioners, and WSU personnel as we work together to create a vibrant future for the agricultural industry. A superb lunch with a short, informative program will follow the research plot tours. Please invite your family and friends to join us for this important event. We are looking forward to seeing you there. – Ron Mittelhammer, Dean of CAHNRS
