We will be having a Corn Field Day again this year at Ricky Reid’s farm on September 10, 2018 beginning at 10:30 a.m. The location is: 4837 NC-87, Gibsonville, NC 27249.

The Field day will consist of our local seed representatives talking about the varieties that we have planted in the plot. Then I have lined up Dr. Charles Cahoon, the new Weed Specialist for Corn at NC State University, to come and talk about weed management in corn post-harvest, as well as what to keep in mind for next years crop. I also have Dr. Ron Heiniger, the Corn Specialist at NC State University, coming to talk about the trials that he has across the state and other production tips for finishing out this year and heading into next year. Lunch will be served so that I ask that you give me a call at 336-570-6740 if you plan on coming.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give me a call or email me at
