CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — Agronomy Day is a collaborative field day hosted by the University of Illinois’ Department of Crop Sciences in partnership with several academic units in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES).

The 2019 Agronomy Day Program offered several tent tours with field demonstrations at the Energy Farm.

“But on top of all the different crop studies we have out here, we have geothermal, we just have a very broad gamut of renewable options for farmers in Illinois and the US,” Energy Farm operations director Tim Mies explained.
