Welcome to Practical Farmer of Iowa’s 2022 Field Day Season!
We can’t wait to get back on the farm this field day season – our first full, in-person season since 2019. With nearly 40 field days planned, there should be something for everyone.
Whether you’re new to PFI field days or a yearly attendee, you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere, a spirit of curiosity, a culture of mutual respect and farmers openly sharing their knowledge and experience. At PFI, we have a unique learning model: Our events are led by our farmer members – we know they are the experts on their specific farming systems. At PFI field days, farmers believe in sharing their knowledge, discoveries, mistakes and successes so you can learn and grow your own operation.
Please join us – we look forward to seeing you at a field day this season.
At Practical Farmers of Iowa, the safety of our staff, members and communities are our top priority.
