"There are definitely some differences," said Extension agent Stacy Campbell.

Extension specialists in agronomy, plant pathology and entomology will be present to discuss the wheat varieties, various productions topics, including a sensor based nitrogen fertilizer plot, and to answer any questions you might have.

The Ellis County wheat plot is located north of Victoria, 1.5 miles west of the intersection of Cathedral Avenue and Fairground Road.

Following the field day, a complimentary meal is provided by supporting businesses. No RSVP necessary to attend.
