Agronomy Day at ILLINOIS has moved this year. It’ll be a bit further south of campus at the new facilities on the First Street farm says University of Illinois Extension Weed Scientist Aaron Hager.

Hager :27 …biggest change is where you show up.

Quote Summary - Agronomy Day will be held at the new facilities on south First Street. So, it will be a change in venue from what most have become accustomed to through the years. It will be held August 18th with a virtually identical format with four tours, but the biggest change is where you show up.

The south First Street facility is about 3 miles or so from the usual place, however, it is in a different city on the map. The address is Savoy. Just go straight south from the U of I’s football and basketball arena’s on First Street and you’ll find the farm on the east side of the road. The doors open at 7am Thursday August 18th, with a meal at the noon hour.
