AgUpdate — FIRST results for northern Red River Valley available online

The wet conditions last fall drug out harvest and made it somewhat difficult to find locations for the 2020 FIRST plots, according to Luke Brendemuhl, manager of the Red River Valley Northland FIRST region. But thanks to completely different conditions this fall allowing harvesting operations to be completed, all of the FIRST (Farmers Independent Research of Seed Technologies) plot information is now available on the website for the region.
