NOTICE: The Ag PhD Agronomy Workshop in Mankato, MN will proceed as scheduled and is NOT delayed or canceled due to weather at this time.

What You’ll Learn

How can you cut expenses in 2018 and still yield well? Which input expenses are just that – expenses? Which inputs are still great investments at lower commodity prices? These are the big questions going into next year, and we’ll answer them at our free Ag PhD Winter Agronomy Workshops!

  • Our topics will vary depending on the location and the crops and pest issues in that area, but here are some of the things we’ll be discussing:
  • New pesticides and seed traits for 2018 and beyond
  • What we learned from last summer’s Ag PhD Field Day plots featuring yield champs in corn, soybeans, and wheat
  • 2017 Ag PhD and farmer research plot summaries
  • Which input expenses to cut vs. which to keep
  • Resistance issues – weeds, diseases, and insects
  • Suggested pest control programs for 2018 in corn, soybeans, wheat, sunflowers, cotton, rice, lentils, field peas, canola, and pastures
  • How to repeat or improve on this past year’s good yields in corn and soybeans
  • Disease control/suppression for some of the worst problems we saw in 2016, including northern corn leaf blight, white mold, sudden death syndrome, pod & stem blight, and fusarium head blight
  • Cover crops – blends to maximize yields and potential disadvantages & benefits
  • iPhone & iPad apps you need

At the conclusion of most of our workshops, we will be broadcasting our one-hour daily Ag PhD Radio Show live from our workshop venue. We invite you to join us for this and ask questions during the show. We will be giving away free Ag PhD merchandise during the radio show.
