2020 K-State Corn Schools - Finding what fits in a new decade


The Department of Agronomy and K-State Research and Extension, in partnership with Kansas Corn, are planning to host six Corn Management Schools in 2020. These schools are designed to provide in-depth training for corn producers across Kansas. While each school’s agenda is tailored for the location, the corn schools will connect with an overall theme of “maximizing advancements in your operation”. Participants will have the opportunity to hear the latest research and production information, get updates on corn issues and network over lunch. The corn schools are free for farmers to attend.

The schools will cover a number of issues facing corn producers in each region including Farm Bill options, weed control, insect resistance, fertility management, disease management, and late-planting seasons.
