The annual Stiles Farm Field Day scheduled from 5:30-8:30 p.m. June 21 will feature strategies on combating high fertilizer and input costs, plus information on new herbicide technology and hemp production in the Blacklands region.

The event is sponsored by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. The Stiles Farm is at 5700 Farm-to-Market Road 1063 in Thrall.

There is no cost to attend the event. A catered dinner will be sponsored by area agribusinesses and the Williamson County Farm Bureau is sponsoring two continuing education hours for pesticide license holders. Registration begins at 4:45 p.m. with concurrent field tours beginning at 5:30 p.m.

High input costs

“Sky-high input costs are at the forefront of every farmer’s mind this year,” said Ryan Collett, farm manager and AgriLife Extension specialist. “Our field day overall is geared towards helping producers improve efficiencies during times of higher production costs. This can be done through more efficient fertilizer usage, marketing strategies, or even deep soil sampling.”

 

Tour topics and speakers include:

A catered dinner will follow the field tour along with a grain market/risk management update with Mark Welch, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension economist, Bryan-College Station.

Scholarships and Williamson County Agriculturist of the Year awards will follow. Door prizes will also be awarded, and the field day will adjourn at 8:30 p.m.
