At this event, participants will tour the University of Illinois Wheat and Oat breeding programs at the South Farm Research and Education Center. We will explain the different stages of the breeding process, how the field trials are designed and managed, and research projects that we have ongoing to accelerate breeding progress.
Participants will also get acquainted with the breeding germplasm and understand its unique strengths. Both program leaders and graduate students will present during this field day. In the event of rain, this event will be postponed until June 5th. Fill out the online registration form to receive more information and updates about the event.
