Extension to host insect, disease management school
Disease and insect management always seems to be a challenge for producers in their cropping enterprises. The management of these concerns are critical for the producer to be able to produce a profitable and productive crop.
Smith County Extension along with Post Rock Extension District are sponsoring an Insect and Disease Management School at the NCK Technical College in Beloit on Dec. 7 to aid producers in identifying and managing these disease and insect problems. We will be offering CEUs with 7 hours for the 1A certification along with the one core hour needed for renewal. CCA credits will also be available for producers and others. Even though the school is all day, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., it has been designed to allow producers to attend the sessions of interest to them.
The morning covers insect and disease management of corn, grain sorghum and soybeans. Following the sponsored lunch, the afternoon session will cover regulations along with insect and disease management of sunflowers and wheat. If you are only interested in grain sorghum or soybean disease or insect management, come at 9:55 a.m., get the latest information and then enjoy the lunch at noon, and get back to your other responsibilities. By coming at 8:30 a.m., and staying the entire day, you can get updates on corn, grain sorghum, soybeans, sunflowers and wheat.
Contact the Smith County Extension Office or any Post Rock Extension District Office to pre-register by Nov. 29. The lunch, refreshments and facilities are being sponsored by Bayer Crop Science, DuPont Crop Protection, Monsanto and Syngenta.
