Two K-State Corn Production Management Schools will be offered in early January 2015 in northeast and central Kansas. Each school will provide in-depth training targeted for corn producers. Primary sponsors of the schools include the Kansas Corn Commission and DuPont Pioneer.
The one-day schools will cover several current corn topics relevant to corn producers in Kansas: drought-tolerant hybrids, high-yielding corn factors, weed control, soil fertility, and price and market perspectives. The schools will begin at 9 a.m. and adjourn at 2 p.m., followed by a tour of facilities. The dates and locations are:
Jan. 9: Hesston, AGCO building, 420 W. Lincoln Blvd. and Jan. 16 in Atchinson.
Lunch will be provided, courtesy of the sponsors. There is no cost to attend, but participants are asked to pre-register before Jan. 5 for the Jan. 9 School in Hesston to plan for meals & materials.
