Sorghum Field Days, Tuesday and Wednesday, September 29 and 30
September 24, 2015, Fort Collins, Colo. - The Colorado Sorghum Producers (CSP), Central Great Plains Research Stations, Plainsman Research Center, and Scherler Farms are hosting Sorghum Field Day events on Tuesday, September 29 and Wednesday, September 30.
At noon on September 29, producers will meet at the Central Great Plains Research station for a complimentary lunch and then tour and discuss the trial results.
On September 30, at 9:00 a.m., producers will meet at the Plainsman Research Center and tour sorghum research studies followed by lunch.
At 3:00 p.m., producers will meet at the Brandon sorghum test plot. Refreshments will be served, sponsored by Sand Creek Inc (Scherler Farms).
At each location, trial results from 2014 will be presented and discussed, followed by a walk-through in the first replication of the 2015 trials. New and different hybrids are entered in the trials each year – every sorghum producer needs to see what's in the future. Company representatives who entered hybrids in the trial are encouraged to come to the field days and would be welcome to make short presentations.
The sorghum variety trials are sponsored by a United Sorghum Checkoff Program Grant.
The Plainsman Research Center is located 4 miles north of Walsh on CR 43, 1.5 miles west on CR HH.
The Brandon sorghum plot is located 6 miles north of Brandon on CR 59 and then 2.1 miles west on CR W.
CSP was organized in November 2007 as a voluntary membership organization to represent sorghum producers at the state and national levels of government and is a member state organization of the National Sorghum Producers. CSP also advances the sorghum industry through public and private research into sorghum production and works to develop, promote and improve the domestic and export markets for sorghum through the United Sorghum Checkoff Program.
