Basic and advanced information about the production, marketing and economics of grasses, alfalfa, other crops and biofuels will be presented at a University of Nevada Extension workshop, March 15-16. The event, “Field Crops for Nevada, Old and New,” will be held at the Pershing County Community Hall in Lovelock.

Along with discussions on topics ranging from biofuel crop production to comparisons of Roundup Ready vs. conventional alfalfa, attendees will be able to network with fellow ag entrepreneurs and participate in several question-and-answer segments.

Preregistration for the two-day event is $50 and includes two lunches and refreshments. Registration at the event is $60. For more information, contact Jennifer Kintz at 775-945-3444, ext. 12, or
