In-depth wheat and canola school planned in Garden City

K-State Research and Extension will host the Biannual Wheat and Canola In-Depth Diagnostic School May 8 to 9 in Garden City.

“In years past this was a wheat-only school,” said John Holman, cropping systems agronomist with K-State Research and Extension, based in Garden City. “This year, we have added topics on canola production since canola acres in the region have rapidly increased in recent years. This will be a great opportunity for crop advisors and growers to view topics first hand in the field. This is a chance to learn and refresh advisors’ and producers’ field skills and visit one on one with the specialists.”

The school will be held at K-State’s Southwest Research-Extension Center at 4500 E. Mary St. The May 8 session runs from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and May 9 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Breakout sessions will be in the field looking at topics first hand. Topics include Crop Growth, Development and Staging; Weed Control; Crop Herbicide Injury; Crop Herbicide Injury; Aerial Imagery and Crop Scouting; Canola Production; Commercial Pesticide License Recertification Core Hour; Weed Identification; Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizers and Methods; Entomology; Fertilizer Rate and Placement; Wheat and Canola Diseases; and Wheat and Canola Seeding Management and Tillage.

Professional development credits or hours are available for attendees, including Commercial Crop Advisor (11), Commercial Pesticide Applicator Credits (5), and Commercial Pesticide Applicator Core Hour (1).

The fee, which includes refreshments and lunch both days, is $100 if paid by May 1. The fee after that date is $125. To register, contact Ashlee Wood at or 620-276-8286.
