If you missed our January Agronomy Workshops, we have one left in February in Mesa, Arizona!

Friday, February 12, 2016 – Mesa, AZ – Convention Center (10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.)

Here are some of the things we’ll be discussing:

  • Roundup Ready 2 Xtend – Where does it fit, and how can you have the greatest success with this new trait?
  • What did we learn from last summer’s Ag PhD Field Day plots featuring yield champs in corn, soybeans, and wheat?
  • 2015 Ag PhD and farmer research plot summaries
  • Which input expenses to cut vs. which to keep
  • Resistance issues – weeds, diseases, insects
  • Suggested pest control programs for 2016 in corn, soybeans, wheat, sunflowers, milo, cotton, rice, lentils, field peas, canola, and pasture
  • New pesticides & seed traits for 2016 and beyond
  • How can I 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 2015 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

Please pre-register online here.  By pre-registering we can get you into the workshop much quicker when you arrive.  Plus, it really helps us make sure we have enough agronomy books, food, and seats for everyone.  Even if you are not sure if you will be able to make it, please pre-register anyway.  Thank you!
