With this season's fluctuating corn prices, unfavorable weather and uncertain marketing opportunities, growing corn isn't as simple as it used to be.
Would you like to gain some insight on solid corn production practices, through hands-on training? Then register now for Farm Journal's Corn College.
Led by Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie, the 2008 Corn College will give you the opportunity to move your production skills to the next level – and turn that knowledge into dollars.
Corn College includes general instruction, breakout sessions in the field, an expo showcasing corn production tools and a live taping of the U.S. Farm Report. Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) credits will be available.
Some of this year's topics include:
- The Basics of Soil
- Managing Pests in Changing Environments
- Marketing Outlook
- Soil and Water Management
- Nitrogen Timing and Placement
- Understanding Our Soil's Ecosystem
The event is held just south of Bloomington, Ill. Two sessions are available, Aug. 5-6 and Aug. 7-8. Cost for the event is $400. Additional registrations from the same farming operation are $300. Attendance is limited to 200 corn growers in each session.
