Bean and Beet Field Day 2021

Dry beans and sugar beets are important crops to many farmers throughout the Thumb and Saginaw Valley. To maximize efficiency, growers work to minimize inputs while still providing essential nutrients and managing yield-reducing diseases, pests, and weeds. At this event, dry bean and sugar beet researchers from MSU, Michigan Sugar Company, and Sugarbeet Advancement will present their research on these topics and discuss current issues impacting these crops. Growers will also have opportunities to connect with MSU specialists Chris Difonzo, Field Crops Entomology, and Marisol Quintanilla, Applied Nematology, about current insect and nematode concerns. We welcome any growers and members of the agribusiness community to join us!

Growers and members of the agribusiness community are encouraged to attend this free event. RUP and CCA credits will be offered. For more information on registration or credits, contact Renae Latoski at
