Space is limited for the summer Farm Journal Corn College sessions. The two-day event for farmers has already sold out, and there's no better time than now to reserve your seat for one of our one-day events.
The Farm Journal Corn College Summer Semester provides practical, hands-on training to help corn growers advance their production skills, increase yields and improve their profitability Led by Farm Journal Field Agronomists Ken Ferrie and Missy Bauer, the event includes general instruction, breakout sessions in the field and an expo showcasing corn production tools.
Watch a video with a crop update from Ferrie about the Corn College demonstration plots:
On July 19, Farm Journal is offering specialized training for consultants and retailers. This will be a day packed with information specifically designed for those who serve farmers. This is the only Corn College session to offer CCA credits. An estimated 12 CEUs will be available.
For farmers, Farm Journal offers two one-day sessions to choose from on July 22 and July 23. In August 2009 we had a one-day Corn College with a sold-out crowd. The attendee feedback was overwhelmingly positive. This is a full day offering hands-on and interactive instruction, and the one-day Corn College is very similar to the two-day event.
Tentative agendas are posted for each event, and you can learn more here:
July 19: One Day Session for Consultants and Retailers
July 22: One-day session for farmers
July 23: One-day session for farmers
Founded in 2008, the Corn College builds on the success of the Farm Journal Test Plot program, which has been helping farmers do a better job of growing corn for 18 years. It is a direct response to requests from farmers for more access to the vast corn production knowledge of Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie.
