Purdue Farm Management Tour & Indiana Master Farmer Reception
The Purdue University Farm Management Tour returned in 2022 with three outstanding farms hosting visitors wanting to learn about farm and crop management on July 19th and July 20th.
The Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University has organized an annual Indiana Farm Management Tour every year since the early 1930s. Host farmers share keys to successful farm management and explain how the management of their operations is changing in response to the ever-changing agricultural economy and the evolving circumstances of their families. They also share reasons behind recent innovations in production practices and adoption of new technology. This is an opportunity to ask questions and learn from the experiences of Indiana’s best farm business managers.
The Master Farmer program is a long-standing tradition in Indiana and honors individuals who have contributed heavily to Indiana agriculture and demonstrated success in farming efficiency, stewardship of natural resources and community service. A reception with a panel discussion will be held in conjunction with the tour to honor the 2022 Indiana Master Farmers.
The 2022 Purdue Farm Management Tour will be July 19-20 in Tipton and Clinton counties in northcentral Indiana and the Master Farmer reception and panel discussion will be held at Beck’s Hybrids on Tuesday afternoon (July 19). – Find out more details under the Agenda tab above.
