Annual Field Day

Each year, the NMSU Agricultural Science Center at Los Lunas conducts a field day where the public is invited out to see what research is taking place at the station. Both NMSU and NRCS programs are highlighted and the day consists of wagon tours, walking tours, informational seminars and demonstrations, and a FREE LUNCH!. The events generally take place in August.

Several other Agricultural Science Centers throughout the state conduct field days or open houses for the public. Please join us at one of our events to learn about the latest research related to the most important issues facing agricultural producers and homeowners in New Mexico.
