MURPHYSBORO, Ill. — Summer is a busy time for our Agriculture and Natural Resources team, and they are excited to showcase some of the projects through a tour of the Jackson County Extension research grounds on August 12.
The grounds feature several research and demonstration projects where valuable data is collected and used as teaching tools to provide best management practices for local growers. Spend the evening learning about the importance of tomato fertilization, exploring different production systems for specialty crops, and touring the 20’ by 48’ demonstration high tunnel. Other highlights of the program will include the native rain garden and a demonstration garden that features cut flowers and gourds.
Join Extension Educators Katie Bell and Austin Little with their intern Kate Baker during this free tour on August 12 at 6 p.m. at the Jackson County Extension office at 402 Ava Road, Murphysboro, Illinois. To register, call (618) 687-1727 or visit go.illinois.edu/jacksontour.
