Iowa State University Extension and Outreach field agronomists will host crop production and recommendation update meetings in December at two locations; Dec. 2 in Iowa City and Dec. 11 in Ames.

The drought of 2012 has likely increased the carryover of nitrate-nitrogen (nitrate-N) into the 2013 season, according to field agronomists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
