Over 250 youths will descend on the Agricenter campus. Agricenter's Agriculture Field day is designed to introduce youth to the many agricultural job opportunities that are available and to interact with colleges.
Agricenter is the world’s largest urban farm. The focus of this field day is plant science and research. Helena Agri-Enterprises will discuss product discovery, registration, and marketing. BASF will explain why data collection is important and the importance of field research. Students will learn about wildlife management from Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) and greenhouse management and maintenance from BASF. 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. The students will be in the fields just as farmers are when they are learning new farming technology. Over 10 area universities will be on campus for students.
