Be sure to tune in for episode 9 of Corn College TV to learn from the field experience of the Farm Journal agronomic team. Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie and Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer give their weekly lesson in corn production.

Bauer presents the Systems Approach for managing diseases. Learn the disease triangle to help understand how, when and what to scout.

Then, head to the field with Bauer for Pollination 101. She explains that a good stand means nothing if ears don’t fill. We’ll show the warning signs of a poor pollination to look for when scouting the field.

Ferrie reaches into the farmer’s toolbox to show how you can be your own weatherman. See how technology has changed and collecting your own weather data that is more accurate and cheaper than ever.

In the Ask an Agronomist segment, we reveal the secrets to stalk nitrate samples. Bauer walks through the timing, procedure and what can be learned from these samples.

And Ferrie gives his experience straight from the field with variable rate planting. Hear Ken Ferrie’s top tips when adopting this technology. From purchasing, to map building to rolling through the field he’ll present the next steps to adopting a more technical planter pass.

Tune in Wednesday morning at 7:30 CST on RFD-TV. Or catch the second airing of episode on Saturday immediately following “U.S. Farm Report.”
