As South Dakota’s farmers know, many factors go into raising successful crops. SDSU Extension’s team works to boost farmers’ yields and profits by providing access to research-based information, resources and local agronomic information.
Collaborating with South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station at SDSU throughout the growing season, our team showcases local data collected from test plots in a field near you.
SDSU Extension will be taking its crop clinics off road this winter to deliver a series of virtual Crop Hour webinars. Starting Jan. 5, every Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 11 a.m. CST, participants are invited to take their coffee break online to hear the latest in crop management and agronomic research from SDSU Extension.
Each presentation is recorded. View past Crop Hour webinars on YouTube.
