Plan To Attend a 2011 Crop Advantage Series Meeting

If you are involved in crop production in Iowa, plan to attend a 2011 Crop Advantage Series meeting sponsored by the Iowa State University Extension. Starting today, there will be 14 meetings held at different locations throughout Iowa.

The meetings are day-long sessions designed to give producers all the latest information to help make profitable decisions for the upcoming growing season. Each meeting features a general session on topics of interest to all producers in the particular area that the meeting is being held as well as a wide variety of topics, including: crops, pests, soil fertility and farm management. This year’s keynote presentation focuses on understanding Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) in soybeans and SDS management options.

In addition, each location offers the opportunity for attendees to recertify their IDALS Private Pesticide Applicator’s license. Each meeting is also approved for continuing education credits.
