What 2008 Corn College Graduates Had to Say

Apr 14, 2009
Here are some take-home comments from those who attended this past year’s event:
 
“You need to attend Corn College to go from being an excellent corn grower to becoming a professional corn grower.”
 
“This was a very good program. I will be back, and I would highly recommend that anyone who has a desire to improve yields to attend this program.”
 
“This was the most informative day and a half I can imagine for anyone interested in corn production and fertility issues.”
 
“Ken Ferrie is basically a genius. It was worth coming out to get all Ken Ferrie for an entire day, and actually even more than that.”
 
“This was a great event. The timing is good. The field trials are good. We need more events like this.”
