The University of Florida and University of Georgia are sponsoring the 2008 Corn Silage and Forage Field Day on May 29 at the Plant Science and Research Unit, Citra, FL.

The morning program will include two sessions. “Fertility Efficiencies and Crop Alternatives for Reduced Fertilizer Needs” will feature alternative summer-annual forage crops and improving animal performance with warm-season legumes, among other topics. The second session, “Managing for Droughty Growing Conditions,” will explore the feeding value of sorghum and annual forages, feed options when grass doesn’t grow and other topics. After lunch, forage equipment field demonstrations will be held.
