A live field demonstration sponsored by Rend Lake College will be open to the public free of charge following the annual Ewing Field Day Thursday, September 11, according to Applied Science Division Chair Ed Billingsley.
The demonstration is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. on the Rend Lake College Land Lab acreage when Prairie Tile Systems of Dahlgren installs a tiling system.
Interested producers and land owners of agriculture commodities are encouraged to attend. "This is a great opportunity to see a tiling system installed in a production field," Billingsley commented.
Ewing Field Day is presented by the University of Illinois Extension Services, in cooperation with Rend Lake College. It will be conducted north of Ewing -- directional signs will be posted that day -- beginning at 9 a.m.
Topics of discussion will include soybean aphids, wheat-planting dates, chemical drift concerns and cover crop information. There also will be time for producers to ask questions.
