Seminars on sorghum and no-till practices presented at 3i Show
Two informative and timely seminars on topics crucial to agriculture in this region will be presented at the upcoming 3i Show. The first seminar on sorghum begins July 12 at 10:30 a.m. and will be moderated by John Jenkinson of The Ag Network with guest panelist Justin Weinheimer, Ph.D., crop improvement program director with the Sorghum Checkoff. Weinheimer is known for his presentations with Sorghum U, a farmer-focused educational series sponsored by the Sorghum Checkoff, Sorghum Partners LLC, High Plains Journal and other regional sponsors that gives producers in Kansas, Texas, Nebraska and South Dakota an opportunity to explore the profitability potential and water management qualities of grain sorghum. The topics covered at this seminar will be regional water concerns, how sorghum fits into irrigated production in Kansas and economics of irrigated sorghum production.
The second seminar covering no-till begins July 13 at 10:30 a.m. and again moderated by John Jenkinson with special guest panelist Paul Jasa, Extension engineer, University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Jasa has been conducting research for more than 30 years, and for much of this time he has been helping producers adopt no-till production systems. The title of his seminar presentation will be Equipment Considerations for No-till, Residue, and Uniformity. Among the points covered will be: harvest management, manage residue to work for you, conserve soil and water, think uniformity with field operations and uniformity of spacing and emergence. This presentation will use a lot of real-field examples to illustrate these points and many other items affecting crop production.
Both seminars at the 3i Show will be held at the CrustBuster Stage Tent at outdoor spaces 96, 98 and 100 directly south of the CrustBuster equipment exhibit. These seminars are sponsored by CrustBuster/Speed King, Inc. of Dodge City.
