North Dakota State University Extension’s Central Dakota Ag Day program will be a virtual event this year.

Beginning Nov. 19, participants will have an opportunity to view more than 35 online presentations related to crops, soils, livestock, precision agriculture, the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program, and agricultural economics and marketing.

The presenters also will be available for questions during live, topic-specific panel discussions that will occur throughout the day on Dec. 3.

Featured speakers include Lee Briese of Centrol Crop Consulting, William Aderholdt of the Grand Farm Initiative and Lynn Paulson of Bell Bank in Fargo. More than 25 NDSU Extension specialists and agents also will share their expertise.

“Central Dakota Ag Day has something for everyone,” says Jeff Gale, the agriculture and natural resources Extension agent in Foster County. “The program offers a wealth of information on a variety of topics relevant to crop and livestock producers, not only in central North Dakota but statewide.”

Registration can be completed now at Links to the presentations will be emailed to the registrants.

“It’s disappointing that an in-person meeting isn’t possible this year,” Gale says. “However, the virtual format means that participants can view the presentations whenever their schedule allows. Participants also will have the opportunity to interact with the presenters during live panel discussions.”

The Central Dakota Ag Day program is organized by NDSU Extension agents in Foster, Eddy, Wells, Griggs, Sheridan and Stutsman counties, as well as staff from NDSU’s Carrington Research Extension Center.

Sponsors of the program include the North Dakota Corn Utilization Council, North Dakota Soybean Council, North Central Region SARE program and crop improvement associations in the six counties.
