ANNUAL FRUIT FIELD DAY IN PARMA

Parma--The University of Idaho's Parma Research and Extension Center will host its annual Fruit Field Day on Thursday, Sept. 3. The free tour generally draws about 500 people, from commercial growers to home gardeners, to learn about the center's fruit projects and check out new varieties of tree fruit and table grapes, professor Essie Fallahi said.

The field day begins with registration at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 1 p.m. at the center, which is about a mile north of Parma at 29603 U of I Lane. For more information, call (208) 722-6701.
