ISU Extension is offering two opportunities for crop producers, scouts and agribusiness professionals to get the latest research from Iowa State University and other institutions.
The 2007 Crop Advantage series continues through the end of January. The sessions focus on corn rootworm strategies and soybean yield, as well as local issues. The 2007 Winter Crop Schools begin Feb. 6 and continue through March 3. Eight sessions will be held on the Iowa State campus, and each focuses on a specific management topic.
“The Crop Advantage meetings provide topics selected for each growing area because growing conditions and management decisions are not the same across Iowa,” said Brent Pringnitz, with ISU Extension’s agribusiness education program. “The crop schools give students more time with a particular topic and allow more student-instructor interaction. Both programs allow participants to discuss the findings with the individuals who conducted the research instead of just reading about it.”
