ISU Extension To Host Crop Advantage Seminar
(Le Mars) -- Area farmers wanting to get a glimpse of what the next crop year will feature will want to attend the Crop Advantage Seminar scheduled for Tuesday. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is hosting the day-long seminar that will be held at the Le Mars Convention Center. Joel DeJong, Extension Crops Specialist says farmers will learn about the two topics of general agricultural interests...markets and weather.
DeJong says northwest Iowa is still very short on moisture levels.
Many farmers are concerned about the lack of moisture and some are adjusting their crop production and selection of hybrids and varieties in anticipation of another dry year.
DeJong says the afternoon sessions will focus on corn rootworm management, nutrient reduction strategy, and cover crops. He says the registration fee is $45 and that covers materials plus lunch.
