Field Day!

June 1

Join us for Field Day in Temple, Texas!

USDA-ARS-GSWRL and Texas A&M AgriLife scientists and staff would like to invite you to visit the Grassland, Soil and Water Research Laboratory Research Field Site and join us for tours of the fields. This is a great time to learn about the current research being conducted at the center. We recommend all guests wear closed-toed shoes and long pants.

RSVP appreciated.
