Corn Getting It Right virtual meeting Jan. 24

Authored on

Farmers and crop advisers have an opportunity to receive corn production information during a virtual Getting it Right (GIR) meeting that North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension is conducting from 8:30 a.m. to noon (CST) on Tuesday, Jan. 24.

Meeting co-chairs are NDSU Extension cropping systems specialists, Greg Endres, Carrington Research Extension Center (REC), and Ryan Buetow, Dickinson REC. The ND Corn Utilization Council is supporting the event.

“We have been conducting virtual crop production GIR meetings since 2020 and participant evaluations have indicated the information has provided a high level of usefulness,” says Endres. “Corn is a new crop addition this winter to the educational series that in previous years has included soybean, dry bean, canola, flax and sunflower.”

“This live Zoom webinar will provide concise presentations with emphasis on central and western ND corn production recommendations for 2023,” says Buetow.

The subjects and presenters are:

  • ND Corn Utilization Council overview – Heidie Haugo, Communications director
  • Plant establishment - Endres
  • Western ND management issues - Buetow
  • Soil considerations and plant nutrition - Dave Franzen, NDSU Extension soil science specialist
  • Plant protection:
    • Weeds - Joe Ikley, NDSU Extension weed specialist
    • Disease - Andrew Friskop, NDSU Extension plant pathologist
    • Insects - Jan Knodel, NDSU Extension entomologist
  • Market update - Frayne Olson, NDSU Extension crops economist/marketing specialist

Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions following presentations. The presentations will be recorded and archived for future reference.

Certified crop adviser continuing education credits (1 crop, 1 pest and 0.5 nutrient management) will be available for meeting participants.
