The Fremont Corn Expo Jan. 6 will provide producers and agribusiness professionals ideas and strategies to remain competitive in the 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 in Fremont, 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 expo participants.

The expo highlights topics identified by corn growers as important to their farming operations. Featured speaker Rick Tolman, CEO, National Corn Growers Association, will discuss the Future of Farming--Promise and Opportunity. Other program topics include: Irrigation and Energy Optimization Cost-share Opportunities--Dave Varner and Aaron Nygren, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension; Corn Plant Populations, Twin Rows and Yield Potential--Roger Elmore, Iowa State University; Farming in Today's Macro Economy--Brian Briggeman, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City; and Corn Trait Mixing, Matching and Stacking--Joe Keaschall, Pioneer Hi-Bred International.

"The Fremont Corn Expo is a great opportunity for producers to fine-tune their production and marketing practices going into the 2010 growing season," Varner said. "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.
