With regard for the concerns for shortages of both fertilizer and pesticides, this program will take a comprehensive look at improving multiple aspects of row crop profitability. Much of the program will focus on the effective use of appropriate amounts of fertilizer, and correctly choosing and applying pesticides. Those in attendance can earn both Pesticide and Fertilizer REcertification.
Reservations are required and may be made on-line through this link. Registration for the Agronomy Day program is $20 per person, and includes lunch. Participants who bring at least one of their recent soil test reports will receive, for free, a copy of the new Tri-State Fertilizer Recommendations for Corn, Soybeans, Wheat, and Alfalfa (Extension Bulletin E-2567).
Participants wanting to acquire their Private Pesticide or Fertilizer REcertification during Agronomy Day on February 8 may do so for NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
Lunch will be provided.
A sampling of the topics that will be covered include: effectively utilizing appropriate amounts of nitrogen, managing a herbicide program in spite of chemical shortages, the carbon credit market, and credit in all areas of Private Pesticide and Fertilizer REcertification will be awarded to those wanting those credits.
Agronomy Day is sponsored in part by the Ohio Soybean Council.
