Fight for Every Bushel

Published on: 11:25AM Jul 29, 2008
This year is a wild ride for corn growers! Despite the frustrations, it is the perfect year to fight for every bushel. Of course, the price of corn provides clear motivation to everyone that planted a kernel of corn. 
If you’re looking for ways to fight for every bushel—this year and next—you’ll like what you learn at the Farm Journal Corn College. The intense two-day session will provide countless tips for growing the best corn crop possible.
The Corn College is an extension of the Farm Journal Test Plots that our Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie and I started 17 years ago, which means it has the same goals: learn how to grow crops better, and share that information with farmers. Much of what we’ve studied in the plots will be demonstrated on 17 acres of demo plots at the Corn College site.
So, come on over and figure out more ways to fight for every bushel. We’d love to have you join us for this opportunity to head into harvest and next year’s planting with greater confidence.

Farm Journal Corn College
Aug. 5 -6 and Aug. 7 -8
Registration is $400—a bargain, considering how you can use what you learn to add incremental bushels to your corn yields. You can register by calling 800-909-3681. You can also fill out a registration form and fax it to 319-277-7982.
Get yourself to one of these hotels the night before, and we’ll have a free shuttle to get to the Corn College and back. The meals, including a steak dinner, are included.
While you’re at the Corn College, be sure to vacuum up the Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) credits, too.
