Learn in the field with Purdue

From crop production and farm management to turfgrass, Purdue summer field days offer educational opportunities for all agriculture professionals.

“Join our Purdue experts this summer for a multitude of in-person field day events. Field days are a critical Extension activity that connects Purdue with members of our community. Commodity producers, crop and livestock advisors, small farmers, turf and landscape professionals, and more are invited to learn about the latest technology and research updates while networking with others in their profession,” said Henry Quesada, Purdue Extension assistant director and program leader for agriculture and natural resources.

Contact your local Purdue Extension office for additional events with continuing education credits available.
