Production Journal: College Selection Guide

April 30, 2011 12:19 AM

In 2008, Farm Journal launched Corn College in response to farmers asking for more access to our agronomic experts. Since then, sold-out crowds totaling more than 2,000 farmers have headed to the field for hands-on training to ratchet up yields. In response to strong demand for more classes, we’ve added another session in the eastern Corn Belt. This lineup with help you decide which event is best for you.
