What is Women Managing Crops?
Women have significant employment, management and ownership on family farms in Iowa. The 2017 Census of Agriculture reported 49,085 women farm operators,
representing 34 percent of all farm operators in Iowa.
This four-session course is designed for women of all ages and experience levels who want to know more about the key agronomic decisions for corn and soybean production. The sessions take a seasonal approach and cover decision-making from pre-season to harvest. Participants will complete activities each week to build
a crop budget based on agronomic decisions of their choosing. Ultimately, participants will access decision tools to help them analyze a yearly crop budget and
consider which managerial decisions can help them improve productivity and profitability.
