WASHINGTON, N.C. — Join us Thursday morning on the People’s Road about one mile off of the Burbage Road near Yeatesville at 8:00AM to learn about water management research topics currently underway there.
The site is located on the People’s Road between NC Hwy 92 East of Bath (near the ferry dock) and Burbage Road. Here are the GPS coordinates for the site:
Dr. Chad Poole, Irrigation and Drainage Extension Specialist with NC State University, along with two of his graduate school students, will talk about projects evaluating corn hybrids and soybean varieties under different water stressed conditions. They will also describe work evaluating irrigation and drainage systems and their impact on crop canopy temperature.
We will also take a few minutes to walk through our corn hybrid trial located at the same site, and talk about the soybean variety trial located close by.
