Regional tile installation field day

The Southeast Research Farm near Crawfordsville, Iowa, will be hosting a 2-day tiling demonstration on August 25 and 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. Food will be available on the grounds.

The field day will consist of the tile installation, commercial exhibits, and educational exhibits. The project area will cover approximately 55 acres. There will be five plot treatments that will include a non-tiled treatment and four tiled treatments. The tiled treatments will include tile lines spaced at 30-, 45-, 60-, and 73-foot intervals. The plots will include four replications of the spacings.

There is still room to reserve space for a commercial or educational exhibit. Commercial exhibit space is $500 for a 10 foot by 10 foot tent site or a 20 foot by 20 foot outdoor site.

The field day site will be located 1 3/4 miles south of Crawfordsville. Take Highway 218 south for 1 3/4 miles, then go 2 miles east on G-62, and finally 3/4 mile north. Signs will be posted.
