The tour was originally scheduled for June 26 at the NDSU Research Extension Center south of Minot. The NCGA and NDSU will have a tour at the Langdon Research Extension Center on July 18th.

Insecticidal seed treatments for canola may not be giving adequate protection this year due to the cool, wet weather we have been experiencing, especially in the northeastern part of the state.
Bayer CropScience Donates $30,000 More to Benefit Canola-Growing Communities
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Replacing a school's leaky windows, equipping firefighters with grassland fire suits, outfitting a park's playground with materials that are safer for children -- these reasons compelled this year's judges to select a few of the latest More for Everyone community award winners. The annual awards program that financially supports small community groups is made possible by InVigor(R) canola hybrids from Bayer CropScience. Through the More for Everyone awards program, Bayer CropScience is donating a total of $30,000 to 10 non-profit organizations across North Dakota in 2013.
In the program's four-year lifetime, Bayer CropScience has awarded more than $117,000 to local groups nominated by canola farmers.
"We believe the benefits of InVigor hybrids result in More for Everyone," says Tom Schuler, strategy lead of seeds and traits for Bayer CropScience. "For farmers, InVigor means the best genetics and more yield. For the canola-growing communities across North Dakota, InVigor means more than $100,000 of repairs, training and education, supplies, and hope."
The total amount awarded each year is linked to how much InVigor canola seed farmers reserved during the company's Early Book period. For each bag of seed reserved during Early Book, Bayer CropScience allotted a specific amount for the More for Everyone awards.
