PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University will hold its 2nd Annual Organic Dryland Grain Crop Field Day, 9 a.m. – noon, Tuesday, June 15.
A systems study of organic grain crops grown on dryland farms was initiated last year with funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The goal was to determine the optimal system for a transitional period as growers move to a certified organic production system.
Organic breeding, green manure and mechanical weed management trials began in 2004.
The field day will be at the Les and Pat Boyd farm, just north of the Moscow-Pullman Airport on Airport Road.
Organic fruit and pastries from Moscow Food Co-Op will be served.
