Due to COVID-19 crowd restrictions, the 2020 Blackland Farm Managers Tour has been canceled. A virtual version of the tour will be released on August 5. We hope to have a few small turn row meetings at the tour site over the next month. We look forward to celebrating the 50th Blackland Tour next year!

Prices are low and mother nature has not been kind to us this growing season. Make sure you are taking good care of your crop and get out and scout!
