Time will be allowed for questions about these projects or other research underway at the farm. Continuing credits for soil fertility, pest management and crop production for certified crop advisors will be offered.

To get to the Armstrong Research Farm, travel on Highway 6 approximately 11 miles west of Atlantic (or 13 miles east of Oakland) to 525th Street, then go 1/2 mile south and 1/2 mile east. Contact any ISU county extension office for more information.
