K-State Corn Production Management Schools scheduled for January

Two K-State Corn Production Management Schools will be offered in early January 2015 in northeast and central Kansas. Each school will provide in-depth training targeted for corn producers. Primary sponsors of the schools include the Kansas Corn Commission and DuPont Pioneer.

The one-day schools will cover several current corn topics relevant to corn producers in Kansas: drought-tolerant hybrids, high-yielding corn factors, weed control, soil fertility, and price and market perspectives.

The schools will begin at 9 a.m. and adjourn at 2 p.m., followed by a tour of facilities. The dates and locations are:

Jan. 9: Hesston, AGCO building, 420 W. Lincoln Blvd

Local Research and Extension office contacts:

Jan. 16: Atchison, Atchison Heritage Conference Center, 710 S. Ninth
