Farm Journal expands Corn College lineup for more opportunities to learn

Corn College 3

Head to the field with Farm Journal Agronomists Ken Ferrie and Missy Bauer and Farm Journal High-Yield Wheat Expert Phil Needham. This summer we’re hosting eight events, each designed to help you increase yields in corn, soybeans and wheat. A description for each Corn College, Soybean College and Wheat College event is below to help you pick a path.

For the First-Time Attendee

Rooted in the Systems Approach, this two-day event will guide the first-time Corn College attendee in how to implement the fundamentals for higher yields. Led by Farm Journal Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer, Corn College Fundamentals puts the focus on the basic building blocks, including soil density, planter performance and fertility.
