Tipton Field Day Approaching on April 26
The annual Tipton Wheat Field Day for southwestern Oklahoma later this month will educate regional wheat producers on the research and developments invested in improving crop production.

“This event presents producers in southwest Oklahoma with regional research that is ongoing on wheat production systems,” said Gary Strickland, Oklahoma State University ag educator in Jackson County and the Southwest Research and Extension Center (SWREC) regional agronomist. "The overall emphasis of this is to look at the production and research of wheat in the southwest Oklahoma region to show producers what works and what doesn’t.”

The Tipton Wheat Field Day will be held 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., April 26 at Tipton Valley Research Center, 7753 State Highway 5 (4 miles south of Tipton on west side of Highway 5), which is part of the SWREC Station Complex in Southwest Oklahoma. The following research topics will be covered:
• OSU wheat variety demonstration
• Wheat hay forage yield and quality study
• Variety testing under limited nitrogen
• CoAXium wheat herbicide study
• Rescuegrass and wild oat herbicide trial
• Wheat breeding block
• Wheat foundation seed block

The event will also feature various guest speakers.

Early registration is not required, but participants are encouraged to register by 12 p.m. on April 22. To register, contact Aaron Henson at 580-335-2515, aaron.henson@okstate.edu or Gary Strickland at gary.strickland@okstate.edu, 580-477-7962.

Onsite registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the tour beginning at 9:15 a.m. The field tour will conclude with lunch and a presentation on Farm Bill policies and the Farm Bill outlook with Amy Hagerman, OSU Extension ag and food policy specialist.
