August 23, 2018

See a growing season in one place! Includes plots with corn growth and development at a range of vegetative/reproductive growth stages. Last year’s participants valued the clinic at $9.55 per acre in knowledge gained.

Nebraska Extension’s Aug. 22 Midwest Soybean Production Clinic and Aug. 23 Midwest Corn Production Clinic will provide an in-field opportunity for participants to work with crops in the early vegetative stages of growth through maturity.

“Agribusiness professionals and crop producers will take a close-up look at field conditions, research and techniques at the University of Nebraska’s Crop Management Diagnostic Clinics,” said Nebraska Extension Educator Keith Glewen. “The clinics provide opportunities for hands-on interaction.”

Soybean clinic topics include: cultural practices; genetics/agronomics; insect management; plant pathology; soil fertility; and weed management.

Corn clinic topics include: cultural practices; genetics/production; insect damage; plant pathology; soil fertility; and weed science.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. both days and the clinics run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Participants will meet at the August N. Christenson Research and Education Building at the university’s Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center near Mead.

A total of 8 Certified Crop Adviser credits (crop management – 2, nutrient management – 2, and pest management - 4) have been applied for and are pending approval for each clinic. Participants will earn 16 credits by attending both days.

Early registration is recommended to reserve a seat (limit 60) and resource materials. Cost for one clinic is $95 for those registering one week in advance and $120 after. Special pricing is available for those registering for both clinics - $150 by Aug. 17, $200 after. We offer a money back guarantee of your registration fee if you’re not satisfied with the training.
