Tomorrow is the big day!

Posted by Russel Higgins -

We cleaned all day and were ready for company! Come join us tomorrow morning at the NIARC for our morning Agronomy Day program. Our first tour will leave at 9:30 AM. There is no cost for the program and lunch will be provided. Speakers and topics include

- What does it take to produce high soybean yields – Emerson Nafziger

- Update on corn rootworm issues and Bt Performance – Mike Gray

- Corn disease identification and management – Carl Bradley

- Nutrient removal by corn and soybean – Fabian Fernandez

- 2012 weed control challenges – Doug Maxwell, senior researcher

Drought related issues are certain to be raised. Certified Crop Adviser CEU's have been applied for.
In addition to general cleanup at the NIARC (and watching a small thunderstorm skirt by to the north), oats were be harvested.
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
