Preparing for NIARC Agronomy Day!

Posted by Russel Higgins -

Lots of activity at the NIARC as we count the days to this weeks Agronomy program. After a tumultuous start we are are excited that the July weather is predicted to cooperate for our event. Your time is valuable and limited, so we have concentrated our summer agronomy program with a great lineup of University of Illinois specialists and researchers into a morning program. The July 10th program begins at 9 am and will end near noon with a meal provided. 3 CEU's (2 Crop management, 1 IPM) are available. It is open to all who wish to attend and there is no cost or registration fee. In addition, Doug Maxwell plans on bringing seedlings from the pigweed family to help northern Illinois producers recognize Palmer amaranth. If your schedule permits, join us on the 10th.
