: Agronomy in the Field - Growing Season Weather Outlook & Weather Resources

  • 02/18/2020 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

: Women landowners, farmers and ag retailers will have the opportunity to meet again this fall and winter to learn more about agronomy and related agricultural topics through distance-learning sessions of Agronomy in the Field. Agronomy in the Field for women is in its fifth year and has been offered at several locations across the state. The goals of Agronomy in the Field are to strengthen agronomic skills for women that allow for better decision-making, provide a better understanding of inputs for crop production, see and understand different conservation practices and increase confidence in communication with their spouse, farming partner, ag retailer or tenant. Programs are hosted by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach field agronomists Angie Rieck-Hinz, Meaghan Anderson and Rebecca Vittetoe, with help from guest speakers on a variety of important topics. Mahaska County will be hosting a site for women to participate in the distance-learning sessions of Agronomy in the Field. Sessions will be offered monthly from November through April. Sessions will start at 6 p.m. and will typically last until 7:30 p.m.. All sessions will be recorded so women can access them at a time convenient for them if they can - ™t join the live sessions.
