2024 Pennycress Field Day

Thursday, May 23, 2024
Western Illinois University
University Farm - Alt Crops Building
(North of the Harry Mussatto Golf Course on Tower Road)
Macomb, IL

*No registration required* and free to the public

This day has been established to introduce the new winter annual crop Field Pennycress to local producers. Researchers along with industry representatives will be present to discuss this very unique short season crop. Unfortunately, with the extremely cold weather this winter, the plots are struggling to get started this spring. We will discuss the results from the previous year and have a chance to tour the plots.

The day is set up as a guided tour through the plots with plenty of time for pictures and individual questions. If you have any questions or would like to bring a large group, please contact Dr. Win Phippen (309) 298-1251 for more details.
