Join Us in February for Wheat College

Jan 24, 2011

Wheat College is in response to farmer requests for training on the fundamentals for high yields in wheat.

On Tuesday, Feb. 1 in Wichita, Kan. and on Thursday, Feb. 3, in Fargo N.D., the seminar will be presented by Farm Journal Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer, who will be joined by high-yield wheat expert and Farm Journal columnist Phil Needham.
“Wheat responds when farmers fine-tune their management,” explains Bauer. “In this seminar we’ll give farmers tips they can take directly to the field using the Systems Approach to take yields to the next level.”
All topics will be tailored to match the geographic areas of the meetings.
“I’ve worked with many growers all across wheat country, and I’ll help the growers in this region of the Wheat Belt eliminate many of the weaknesses within their production systems to create high yield potential from the very start,” Needham says. “The bottom line is profit, so I will share insights and research to help producers produce the best return on their investment.”
The topics will include: Growth and Development; Stand Evaluation and Plant Health; Nitrogen Application and the Keys for Timing and Rates; Nitrogen Application Forms and Stabilizers; and Yield Threats with Scouting Procedures. The curriculum will also include bonus corn content.

Training Gives Field-Ready Tips for the Planter Pass

Jan 12, 2011

To help southern farmers head to the field this spring with confidence, Farm Journal is hosting the Corn College Planter Clinic led by Farm Journal Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer. The one-day event will set farmers on the right foot for planting their 2011 crop.

“The planting pass is one of the most important passes through the field. The sins of planting can haunt you all season,” Bauer said.

Held Jan. 18 in Robinsonville, Miss., the event will cover all planter brands and models, as well as planter technologies incorporated on today’s machinery. The topics will be tailored for the perfect planter pass to set the seed in southern soil.

“A planter clinic can help fine-tune a farmer’s equipment and set them up for success,” Bauer said. “This planter clinic provides a foundation from the hitch pin to the closing wheels.”

Key topics in the sessions:


• How to identify a good stand and set your goals for planting execution


• How to evaluate the soundness of your planter


• How to set your planter for the best performance possible


• Planter attachments that can help improve your planter do a better job


• New planter technology you can use

The day ends with an open agronomic question and answer session with Bauer who joined the Farm

Journal Test Plots in January 2010. She closely works with farmers in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana

through her independent crop consulting business is based in Coldwater, Mich.
