Wallace Foundation and Iowa State University Host Armstrong Farm Field Day



Corn fungicides, corn nematodes and Marestail weed management in soybeans are featured at this year’s Armstrong Farm Field Day scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 9, at 9:30 a.m. near Lewis.

Field days give farmers and the public a chance to see research projects in progress and talk with the researchers involved in the experiments. But they also provide the opportunity to view the latest in modern agriculture. Anyone is welcome to attend.

Those visiting the Armstrong Research Farm and other Iowa State farms with livestock are asked to take several precautions if they have been at another livestock operation. Those who have recently returned from a trip abroad are asked to wait five days before visiting Iowa State farms with animals. Visitors to farms with livestock are asked to change clothing and footwear after being in any livestock operation, foreign or domestic; and to refrain from bringing any food items to the research farm. If you have any questions, please call the Research and Demonstration Farms office at (515) 294‐5045 or read the Foot and Mouth Advisory.

The Armstrong Research Farm is located 12 miles southwest of Atlantic on Highway 6, half a mile south on 525th Street, and a half mile east on Hitchcock Avenue, or 13 miles east of Oakland on Highway 6, half a mile south on 525th Street, and half a mile east on Hitchcock Avenue. The field day is open to the public at no cost.
