OSU Agriculture Field Days
Oklahoma State University Ag Research and OSU Extension are strengthening their ties to each other and Oklahoma communities by publicizing their field day events as both OSU Ag Research and Extension educational events. Alongside field research, the lineup of OSU Agriculture Field Days will also highlight the research of laboratory scientists, such as microbiologists and geneticists and some of the social and economic research that goes into agricultural research and rural issues.
