Not many of us have experienced a growing season like this one, but all of us must now plan the best course of action to help our properties recover from it.  The 2012 Summer Field Day is preparing to offer you the latest and most comprehensive information on drought recovery.  This is a great opportunity for us all to learn and we’ll look forward to seeing you on August 23rd.
