NRCS Elsberry Plant Materials Center Plans Field Day

The USDA NRCS Elsberry Plant Materials Center (PMC) invites you to attend their Field Day on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The open house begins at 10:00 a.m. with a welcome and introduction to the Elsberry Center.

A wagon tour will provide an overview of the facilities and specialized equipment for foundation seed processing, harvesting, cleaning, and the storage requirements for native seed. The tour will also view the Center’s production fields.

The Center has 19 active studies that directly relate to finding plant solutions to help respond to our natural resources challenges in the three states of Iowa, Illinois and Missouri that the Center serves.

So schedule June 20, 2012 Tuesday to come and spend a beautiful summer day at the Elsberry Plant Materials Center. Bring your lunch, picnic tables and shaded trees provided! An agenda will be e-mail out to field offices a month before the field day.

Please Confirm Your Attendance by calling the center at 573-898-2012 or email Ron or Jerry.
