University of Minnesota Extension plans talk on corn, soybean producer savings
The University of Minnesota Extension will present "Barriers to Bushels," a series of talks on how to control the costs of growing corn and soybeans.
Three locations will be offered across central Minnesota in late February: Little Falls, Appleton and Willmar.
University Extension educators and specialists will discuss topics with proven fertilizer, pest, soil and weed management with the intent to ultimately increase a producer's margins and to take control over resistant pests, weeds and diseases.
The speakers encourage an open discussion format designed to support audience interaction.
The program cost is $30 which includes a meal provided courtesy of local sponsors and handouts.
The Feb. 16 discussion in Little Falls will be from 9 a.m to 2:15 p.m at the Cabin Fever Saloon and Eatery. Registration begins at 9 a.m.
- Corn and Soybean Diseases — Dave Nicolai.
- Managing Insect Resistance — Ken Ostlie.
- Weed Resistance: Managing for the future — Jeff Gunsolus.
- Optimizing starter and pop-up fertilizer — Dan Kaiser.
Pre-registration is not required. For more information contact Dan Martens, 320-968-5077.
