Iowa State Northwest Research Farm to highlight crop research results


Results of crop production research conducted at Iowa State University Northwest Research Farm located near Sutherland, Iowa, will be shared during a program for corn and soybean producers. Paul Kassel, ISU Extension and Outreach field agronomist is hosting the program on Feb. 2 in Spencer. Iowa State has a long-standing relationship with Iowa corn and soybean producers to provide quality, unbiased research data, which improve decisions made for their farm operations.

Erin Hodgson, ISU Extension and Outreach entomologist, will keynote the program, sharing her results from research conducted on the control of corn aphids at the Northwest Research Farm. Aphids that damage corn appear to be an emerging pest of corn. Hodgson also will discuss the results of some studies on soybean aphids conducted at the ISU research farm.

Ryan Rusk, ISU Research farm superintendent at Sutherland, will be on hand to discuss current crop production research at the farm and provide a summary of the 2011 growing season. Kassel and Rusk will share the results of a six-year study conducted at the NWRF on the use of foliar fungicides on four different varieties of soybeans. In addition, Kassel will discuss the current levels of subsoil moisture in northwest Iowa.

Josh Sievers, ISU Research Farms ag specialist, will discuss comparisons of planting rates of corn and soybean, foliar fungicide use, seed treatments and the use of land rollers as part of the Northwest Iowa On-Farm Research, an activity of the NWRF that conducts research projects on cooperating farmers' land in northwest Iowa.

The Feb. 2 program will be held at the Spencer Schools Administrative building in Spencer. The Spencer Schools Administrative building is located at 518 1st Avenue East, about one block east of the Spencer Hotel.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the program at 9:30 a.m., concluding with lunch at noon. The cost to attend is $5 per person and includes refreshments, handouts and lunch. Pre -registration is recommended. Individuals can register by calling the ISU Extension and Outreach office in Clay County at 712-262-2264 by Feb. 1.
