2010 Field Day at Russell Ranch Sustainable Agriculture Facility is scheduled for Tuesday, June 22.

Field Day has a history of providing growers, students, lawmakers and the public with information about research results and new initiatives at Russell Ranch, which is part of the Agricultural Sustainability Institute at UC Davis.

This year, the day will begin with remarks from Tom Tomich, Director of ASI, to provide an overview of Russell Ranch and ASI. Then, participants will go on a field tour, and Cooperative Extension specialists, faculty, post-docs and graduate students will present results from their current research projects . The researchers will discuss irrigation management, greenhouse gas emissions, weed management, information on tomato and legume cultivars, pollination ecology and soil microbiology. The day will conclude with a grower panel discussion, traditionally a highlight of the event, and lunch.
