Field Day Update

21/05/2012 at 11:19 am Leave a comment

Field Day went off without a hitch!  Lucky for us, the weather cooperated and everyone had a great day out.  An introductory meeting was held after the guests arrived at the Pee Dee Research Center.

With Dr. Roy Dodd as the Master of Ceremonies, our distinguished guests were introduced as they spoke and addressed the crowd.  A grower’s guide was provided to all attendees and naturally allowed to ask questions along the way.  An introduction to CRAiLAR and flax was provided along with an explanation of the field display.  Guests were then shuttled to the field to see flax in various stages of growth and harvest along with the support equipment. Equipment representatives were available to answer any questions about machine settings & functions.

A big thank you goes out to everyone who came by to learn more about CRAiLAR and flax, share experiences from the past season, and prepare for the upcoming fall planting.  Our informative afternoon was capped off with a delicious dinner, catered by Roger’s Bar B Que.  Thank you for the great food and generous hospitality!
