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 applying pesticides.Those in attendance can earn both Pesticide Recertification, and the recently created Fertilizer Certification.
Reservations are required. Registration for the Agronomy Day program is $10 per person, but that fee will be waived if you bring one of your recent soil test reports to the program.
IF you want to acquire your Pesticide Recertification hours, the cost for that will be an additional $25 per person (and, will only be charged if you want to claim the 3 hours of Pesticide Recertification credit).
IF you choose to acquire your Fertilizer Certification, there will be NO additional CHARGE for attending the meeting (if you do NOT have a Pesticide Certification, ODA will invoice you $30 to complete the certification, find details linked here).
Lunch will be provided compliments of Farm Credit Mid-America, Crop Production Services, and Syngenta.
A sampling of the topics that will be covered include: the use of drones in agriculture, managing Enlist Duo around sensitive crops, soil sampling techniques that improve accuracy, interpreting soil test reports, utilizing the ODA Sensitive Crop Registry, the future of optimized ethanol corn genetics, and developing fertilizer recommendations.
