To date, the following UW–Madison field days are confirmed as cancelled:
- Agronomy and Soils Field Day at Arlington Agricultural Research Station (ARS)
- Potato Research Field Day at Hancock ARS
- Wisconsin Turfgrass Association Summer Field Day at O.J. Noer Turfgrass Research and Education Facility
