Tours of the Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center are scheduled and directed by center staff. Tours are usually between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Alternative schedules may be accommodated on a case-by-case basis. General field tours are normally 1-1 ½ hours in length and can be scheduled by contacting superintendent of agriculture Chuck Boldwyn at firstname.lastname@example.org, (559) 646-6020.

Tour requests should be made at least one week prior to the tour date.
Research sponsored field days, tours, events or group visits require advanced notification and approval by the Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center director.
