The end of an era

It’s hard to believe, but it has been nearly five years since I was first diagnosed with breast cancer.

Annual Post Rock District Wheat Plot Tours converted to “virtual”

Annually the Post Rock Extension District conducts face-to-face tours of our wheat demonstration plots around the district. However, with the pandemic conditions, we have converted our tours to “virtual”. But, the variety signs are up on each of the wheat plots in Jewell, Osborne and Smith counties and the field locations will be posted on our website at www.postrock. ksu.edu under the “Crops” tab and then “Test Plots”.
