FFA FIELD DAY

Sept 14, 2016

9:30 am - 1:00 pm 

Free lunch provided

Agricenter's FFA programs are designed to introduce our youth to the many job opportunities that are available for prospective agricultural employees. Over 300 Future Farmers of America (FFA) will descend on the Agricenter campus and students who are in FFA chapters with their schools in the tri-state region are welcome to attend.  There is still time for your chapter to sign-up to attend. 

The focus of this field day is on plant science and research. Helena Chemical Company will discuss product discovery, registration, and marketing and BASF will explain why data collection is important and the importance of field research.  They will learn about wildlife management from Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) and greenhouse management and maintenance from Bayer Crop Science.  Crop Production Services will talk about Ag sales and Waypoint Analytical about soil testing and diagnostics.  Agriculture careers in government will be discussed by TN Department of Agriculture.
