Sept. 17: The National Corn Growers Association, as a member of the Ag Nutrient Policy Council, invites all interested members to participate in a webinar on nutrient management challenges in the wake of this year’s historic drought. The 90-minute session, offered by the American Society of Agronomy and the Certified Crop Advisors, is free to growers but does require advance registration to hold one of the 1,000 slots being offered for the September 26 session, to be held at Noon CDT.
“The dry conditions that plagued much of the country will do damage beyond impacting yields and this year’s crop,” said NCGA Production and Stewardship Action Team Chair Dean Taylor. “These conditions have created a fundamentally new set of even more complex considerations that farmers must consider when planning how to most effectively use and manage the nutrients necessary for crop production. I strongly encourage farmers interested in exploring this important topic to register today and, following the session, to share the knowledge with their friends and neighbors, thus multiplying its benefit.”
