Farmers get hands-on information, both in the field and in the classroom.

If you'd like more practical knowledge that can help you harvest higher corn and soybean yields this fall, then plan now to join Ken Ferrie and team for the 2021 Farm Journal Corn and Soybean College on August 3-4. You can register here:

"We have all-new agronomic content to share, and we'll be offering it through a blend of inside classroom sessions and in-field, hands-on sessions," says Ferrie, Farm Journal Field Agronomist.

The theme for this year's event is Farming in the Environmental Triangle. Agenda topics include sessions on: Covers, Carbon Credits, and CO2; Navigating Through Nutrient Regulations, Maximizing the Natural Environment for High Yield Soybeans, Managing Your Subsurface Environment, Choosing Storage Tanks for Micronutrients and Managing the Furrow. More details on each topics are available at the registration site.

This is an unsponsored event, allowing for more time for Ferrie and his agronomic team to spend with farmers and other attendees answering questions and evaluating corn and soybeans in the field.

"We're excited about getting back together for a live program, but we are capped at 110 people," Ferrie says. "We'll be monitoring any updates from our local and state authorities between now and August and keeping farmers informed in the process."

When farmers register for the event, they will also receive a ticket to attend the one-day Crop-Tech Virtual Winter College, scheduled for Jan. 4, 2022.

"We decided to go with the January date after farmers asked us last summer if we could schedule the virtual program for sometime in the winter, when they'd be likely to have more time available to participate in it," Ferrie explains.

He adds that the material for the one-day virtual event will be a condensed version of the two-day agenda and will include updates to show the follow-through to yield with live Q & A segments throughout the day.
