Building on its series of agronomic training events, Farm Journal is hosting the first-ever Wheat College.
On Tuesday, Feb. 1 in Wichita, Kan. and on Thursday, Feb. 3, in Fargo N.D., the seminar will be presented by Farm Journal Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer, who will be joined by high-yield wheat expert and Farm Journal columnist Phil Needham.
“Wheat responds when farmers fine-tune their management,” explains Bauer. “In this seminar we’ll give farmers tips they can take directly to the field using the Systems Approach to take yields to the next level.”
Wheat College is in response to farmer requests for training on the fundamentals for high yields in wheat. All topics will be tailored to match the geographic areas of the meetings.
“I’ve worked with many growers all across wheat country, and I’ll help the growers in this region of the Wheat Belt eliminate many of the weaknesses within their production systems to create high yield potential from the very start,” Needham says. “The bottom line is profit, so I will share insights and research to help producers produce the best return on their investment.”
The topics will include: Growth and Development; Stand Evaluation and Plant Health; Nitrogen Application and the Keys for Timing and Rates; Nitrogen Application Forms and Stabilizers; and Yield Threats with Scouting Procedures. The curriculum will also include bonus corn content.
