Extension Educator – Crops
Did you miss any of the Strategic Farming: Let’s Talk Crops sessions this winter and were wondering where to access recordings? Well search no more. All sessions, which were originally held Wednesday mornings from January 6 to March 24, are available at: z.umn.edu/strategic-farming. Just scroll down the page to find the recordings.
Topics ranged from corn and soybean management and selection tips, pest and nutrient management, and on-farm research, to cover crops, third crops, and conservation programs. Links to key resources for many of the sessions have also been posted. A special thanks to the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council and the Minnesota Corn Growers Research and Promotion Council for sponsoring this program!
Building off this program’s success, U of MN Extension will be hosting “Strategic Farming: Field Notes” every Wednesday morning, 7:30 to 8 a.m., starting April 21 throughout the 2021 growing season. These interactive, discussion-based sessions will address in-season cropping issues as they arise. Farmers, crop consultants, agronomists, agricultural sales reps, agency personnel, researchers, educators, and anyone else who is interested are encouraged to join in. To learn more and to register go to: z.umn.edu/strategic-farming.
