An Ag Equipment Showcase this past week near Crookston considered important issues including soil health, weed resistance, insect and disease control. Organizer Craig LaPlante sees value in farm-based research. “Universities are having a harder time getting funding and these farms are growing and changing so fast that they almost have to be their own researchers to keep up.” LaPlante hosted this field day at his farm and hopes to see it grow in the future. “Hopefully, we can have an associaiton of guys that can do this and move it to different areas in the Upper Midwest or even northern Minnesota.”
