Mark your calendar for the K-State Sorghum Schools in early February

 

A series of three K-State Sorghum Production Schools will be offered in early February 2018 to provide in-depth training targeted for sorghum producers and key stakeholders. The schools will be held at three locations around the state.

The one-day schools will cover a number of issues facing sorghum growers: weed control strategies; production practices; nutrient fertility; and insect and disease management.

The dates and locations of the K-State Sorghum Production Schools are:
 

  • February 6 – Dodge City - Boot Hill Casino Conference Ctr., 4100 W Comanche St

Andrea Burns, Ford County, aburns@ksu.edu, 620-227-4542

 

  • February 7 – Hutchinson – Hutchinson Community College, 1300 N Plum St

Darren Busick, Reno County, darrenbusick@ksu.edu, 620-662-2371

 

  • February 8 – Washington – FNB Washington 101 C Street, Box 215

Tyler Husa, River Valley District, thusa@ksu.edu, 785-243-8185

 

Lunch will be provided courtesy of Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission. There is no cost to attend, but participants are asked to pre-register by January 31.

Online registration is available at: http://bit.ly/KSSORGHUMSchools

You can also pre-register by emailing or calling the nearest local K-State Research and Extension office for the location you plan to attend.

More information on the final program for each Sorghum School will be provided in upcoming issues of the Agronomy eUpdate.
