ISU Extension Meetings to Update Dealers of Ag Inputs

November 12, 2010

By Brent Pringnitz, Corn and Soybean Initiative

Iowa State University Extension field agronomists are coordinating one day meetings to provide ag chemical dealers with updates on the latest crop production products and recommendations. Meetings will be held at three locations during December — Ames, Iowa City and Storm Lake; times, agenda and Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) credits vary by location.

These meetings are an excellent opportunity for ag input providers to meet with Extension specialists to review current research, discuss new products, and learn of new recommendations.

Each location will feature presentations on weed, insect and crop disease management as well as soil nutrient management and is approved for Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) credits. In addition, the meetings offer recertification for Iowa Commercial Pesticide Applicators in categories 1A, 1B, 1C and 10. Recertification is included in meeting registration.

Registration for the meetings is $70 until one week prior, and $85 after that. Registrations are accepted the day of the program.
