It is not too late to attend a K-State Corn School
The last three Corn Management Schools will be held in February at locations in northwest, north central, and northeast Kansas. These schools are hosted by the Department of Agronomy and K-State Research and Extension, in partnership with Kansas Corn. Each school is 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.
