Fremont Corn Expo offers growers solutions

Nebraska

The Fremont Corn Expo Jan. 7, 2009, in Fremont will provide producers and agribusiness professionals ideas and strategies to remain competitive in the challenging corn industry.

Registration for the free event begins at 8 a.m., with a complimentary breakfast and a chance to view exhibits. The expo, which runs from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the main arena at Christensen Field, is designed for growers, crop consultants, agronomists, seed corn representatives, and others looking to improve corn production, marketing and utilization. A complimentary lunch will be served to participants.

The expo highlights topics identified by corn growers as important to their farming operations. This year's program topics include: identifying corn pests, global fertilizer supply/demand--now and in the future, plant nutrients that limit high corn yields, and a corn industry update. Don Hutchens, executive director of the Nebraska Corn Board, will visit with growers about corn's current dilemma--the good, the bad and the ugly. Special guest Bob Nielsen, Purdue University corn specialist, will address the top 10 challenges for today's corn producers.

"The Fremont Corn Expo is a great opportunity for producers to fine-tune their production and marketing practices going into the 2009 growing season," according to UNL Extension Educator Dave Varner. "Participants will leave the expo with information that they can use immediately and long-term."

A special nitrogen applicator and irrigation management certification training will be conducted for Lower Platte North Natural Resources District producers immediately following the expo at 3 p.m.

For more information contact Varner, at 402-727-2775 or dvarner1@unl.edu. Exhibitor space is available.

The Fremont Corn Expo is sponsored by UNL Extension, Colfax-Dodge County Corn Growers, Nebraska Corn Growers Association, Nebraska Corn Board, Fremont Area Chamber Agricultural Business Council, Dodge County Farm Bureau and area agribusinesses.
