Program

International Agronomy Day 2019 will include in-field presentations by researchers at the University of Illinois. All presentations will be given in English. Each group must provide their own translator(s). On-site translators will NOT be available. The field tours will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m., so we encourage participants to arrive at the South Farm no later than 8:15 a.m. Participants will be divided into groups and begin the tour at a designated presentation. Each presentation will last 20-25 minutes. After each presentation, participants will walk a short distance to the next presentation; this will be repeated until participants have attended each presentation. Speakers encourage questions and dialogue from tour participants. Lunch will be served at 1:00 p.m. and the program will end at 2:00 p.m.
