By Mark Licht and Jim Fawcett, ISU Extension and Outreach
Updates on the latest crop production products and recommendations are the featured topics at meetings sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach at two locations in December: Iowa City on Dec. 5 and Ames on Dec. 6.
These meetings are an excellent opportunity for ag input providers to meet with extension specialists and hear information about nematodes on corn, P and K moist soil tests and corn rootworm management, as well as other topics.
Each location will feature presentations on weed, insect and crop disease management, as well as nutrient management. Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) credits will be available for each meeting (3.0 PM, 1.0 NM, 1.0 SW and 0.5 CM). In addition, the meetings offer recertification for Iowa Commercial Pesticide Applicators in categories 1A, 1B, 1C and 10. Recertification is included in meeting registration.
Early registration is $70. Late registration after Nov. 29 or on the date of the meeting is $85. For more information about a specific location, contact one of the hosts listed below. Registration materials and additional information is available at www.aep.iastate.edu/acu.
