Head to the field this summer with Farm Journal Field Agronomists Ken Ferrie and Missy Bauer. Take part in this year’s seven game-changing events, each designed to help you take your operation to the next level. The curriculum uses the Systems Approach to teach new strategies to maximize yields and revenue. 

Even though each training requires tuition, sponsor support provides an enriched experience and a bargain for attendees. At press time, those sponsors include: BASF, Chevrolet, Dow, FMC, Great Plains Mfg., PlantTuff, Precision Planting, SFP and WolfTrax.
Register today to take part in our innovative summer colleges. Discounts are available for early bird and multiple registrations. Hope to see you there!

"The content changes every year, which means I learn something different every year. Ken [Ferrie] does a good job of repeating the details that need to be repeated and then going above and beyond. The content covers everything from new technologies to the importance of micronutrients in corn. Since I’ve been attending Corn College, I’ve implemented vertical tillage and do a better job of calibrating my combine and scouting. Now, we’re looking into variable-rate nitrogen and split-applying nitrogen." —Paul Ralston, Alger, Ohio
