Oklahoma State University Agriculture will host its annual Wheat & Forages Field Day in April for producers to learn about wheat varieties, wheat hay forage yield and quality studies, herbicide trials, nitrogen fertility and wheat breeding.

OSU Agriculture Field Days are educational events presented by OSU Ag Research and Extension to share research-based information and resources with Oklahomans. Field days showcase current agricultural research and relevant best practices through presentations, tours, hands-on workshops and discussions.

Research at OSU locations across the state is often designed for specific applications based on region.
