K-State Pre-Plant Corn Schools - February 2019

The Department of Agronomy and K-State Research and Extension, in partnership with Kansas Corn, are planning to host three Corn Pre-Plant Schools in 2019. These schools are designed to provide in-depth training for corn producers across Kansas with targeted information for each location.

Each school is free to attend and will have lunch provided thanks to support provided by Pioneer. A range of topics will be covered and vary by location including: corn management, high-yielding corn factors, weed control, soil fertility and nutrient management, soil health considerations, insect management, corn market and policy perspectives, and grower panel discussion.
