The goal of the 2016 Corn College is to help farmers focus on critical topics that can help them not only get the most bang for their buck, but to also raise the profit potential for their farms. The workshop is taught by OSU Extension educators and specialists. Topics will include:

  • A 2016 market outlook
  • Budgeting a profitable corn crop
  • Agronomic practices that optimize profitability in corn production - perception versus reality
  • Nitrogen timing and needs during corn development
  • Darke County on-farm research results, including nitrogen response and manure side dress
  • Insect pressure on today’s genetics and future control
  • Fungicide effects on disease, ear rot and yield in field corn
  • Decision-making with high-resolution crop imagery

Registration is $50 and includes the program, handouts, breakfast and lunch. Contact Sam Custer for more information or a registration form. The deadline to register is February 3. Send payment to OSU Extension – Darke County, 603 Wagner Ave, Greenville, Ohio 45331.
