Feb. 4, 2013, wheat producers will have the opportunity to learn intensive wheat management techniques and how to apply them on their farms to increase profits. Crop Production Services and Colorado Conservation Tillage Association will sponsor the Wheat Seminar with Phil Needham of Needham Ag Technologies. This all-day training is limited to 80 participants so everyone will have an opportunity to ask questions specific to their operations.
Phil Needham has a history of increasing wheat yields. As a consultant, he and his team members were able to double the average wheat yields in Kentucky. According to Needham, the key to increasing wheat yields is management. Limiting tillage, paying close attention to seed populations, pest control, and nutrient management are a few of the topics specific to the High Plains Regions that will be covered in the seminar. With any operation the right equipment is important and Needham will be discussing a variety of equipment styles and give producers management tips for each one.
If the seminar fills before you are able to register, Needham will also be a keynote speaker at the High Plains No-Till Conference in Burlington, Colo., Feb. 5 to 6, 2013. For more information and to register for the events visit www.HighPlainsNoTill.com.
