Robert Dunker attended the Highland Community College Field Day on August 29, 2018 in Freeport Illinois. The DIFM Program had a booth to distribute information about farmer recruitment and participation. Several students and farmers stopped by the booth to learn more about the program and how they could become involved.
On August 21, Dennis Bowman, University of Illinois Extension Educator, spoke to 45 farmers and agricultural professionals at the Kane County Corn Growers Plot Meeting. He explained the goals and methods of the DIFM project.
