For 2011, Farm Journal is expanding its lineup of Corn College events to include the first-ever Wheat College and Soybean College.
Wheat College is in response to farmer requests for training on the fundamentals for high yields in wheat. Farm Journal Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer will be joined by high-yield wheat expert Phil Needham. The curriculum will also include bonus corn content. There are two dates and locations: Feb. 1 in Wichita Kan. and Feb. 3 in Fargo, N.D.
Soybean College will be a two-day event Aug. 1 to 2. With a large focus on in-field diagnostics, let Farm Journal Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer teach you the secrets to soybean production. This day and a half event will focus on fundamentals, soybean growth and development, and take-home knowledge of how to raise better beans. The event is located near Coldwater, Mich. at the facilities of Missy Bauer.
