The Vegetable Research Farm field site consists of an acre planted in field corn, dry beans, winter squash and melons, and includes a large irrigated section for comparison. The primary focus of this site is to test the potential benefits of using microbial inoculants in dry farming, in a project led by OSU Postdoctoral Fellow Lucas Nebert. Additionally, participants will learn about ongoing bean and melon variety trials, a dry farmed dent corn breeding project, and efforts to optimize planting density in dry farming! This will be a drop-in style event with one 30 minute guided field tour starting promptly at 5pm.
