AMAR, Mo. (AP) — University of Missouri Extension is conducting its annual wheat tour near Lamar, where experts will talk about bugs, diseases and the performance of different varieties of wheat.
The tours have been offered for nearly 40 years. This year's wheat tour starts at 6:30 p.m. Monday on the farm of David Sheat.
State Entomologist Dr. Wayne Bailey will address potential insects that threaten wheat and double crop soybeans. Agronomy specialist Pat Miller will talk about diseases in wheat, while David Tague is slated to discuss wheat variety and performance.
Refreshments are being provided by a local 4-H chapter for the free event, and reservations are not necessary. Anyone seeking directions or further information can contact the Barton County Extension office.
