Edisto REC Hosting Cotton & Soybean Field Day
Edisto research & education center has been a busy place lately, and will be once again next Thursday at the second crop field day of the fall. Clemson Extension soybean specialist David Gunter explains that the events gets started mid-afternoon:
“We’ll start about 3:30 and will have a full agenda. We will likely go close to dark. There will be some really good information shared.”
Gunter outlines some of the demonstrations of the field day:
“Our first stop will be talking about the irrigation of cotton. We will hear from our new irrigation specialist. Then we will move on to weed management and insect management in cotton and soybeans. We’ll look at the cotton and soybean efficiency variety tests. We’ll finish up with twin row soybeans and cotton.”
Regarding the twin-row soybeans, Gunter says he’s pleased with the way they’ve performed this year:
“This has been a very good growing season for them. We do have a little bit of soybean rust showing up, and if its visible we may stop to look at it.”
