Updates on the latest crop production products and recommendations will be the featured topics at a meeting sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Dec. 17 in Coralville.  Details and register here.

“This meeting is intended to keep ag retailers informed on new research or products pertaining to diseases, insects, weeds, and crop nutrition,” said Josh Michel, field agronomist with ISU Extension and Outreach.

The Coralville Ag Chemical Dealer Update qualifies for Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) continuing education credits, and provides recertification for calendar year 2019 for Commercial Pesticide Applicators in categories 1A, 1B, 1C, and 10.
“This event is an opportunity for ag retailers and farmers, who may be unable to attend the Integrated Crop Management Conference, to still hear new, research-based information and complete their commercial pesticide applicator recertification,” said Rebecca Vittetoe, field agronomist with ISU Extension and Outreach.

Some of the topics on the agenda for the Coralville meeting include insect, crop disease and weed management updates, and managing consequences of unavoidable soil compaction.

Early registration is $70 if received by midnight, Dec.10. Late or on-site registration is $85. A similar meeting will take place in Ames on Dec 18. Visit www.aep.iastate.edu/acu for more program details and to register online.

The Coralville meeting will be held at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center at I-80 exit 242. Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. with coffee, juice and morning refreshments. The program will start at 9 a.m. and end at 3:45 p.m.
