Iowa State University Extension

AMES, Iowa – Updates on the latest crop production products and recommendations are the featured topics at two meetings sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Nevada on Dec. 8 and in Coralville on Dec. 15.

These meetings are an opportunity for ag input providers to meet with extension specialists to review current research, discuss new products and learn of new recommendations.

Topics for 2021 include a review of the growing season, corn rootworm management updates and three hands-on sessions that participants will rotate through. The hands-on sessions will feature a discussion on sprayer calibration, pesticide mixing order and pesticide incompatibility, and dry fertilizer applications.  

Meetings are approved for Certified Crop Adviser credits (0.5 crop management, 1.0 nutrient management, and 4.0 pest management, which include the optional applicator training session). In addition, the meetings offer Iowa Commercial Pesticide Applicator recertification in categories 1A, 1B, 1C for calendar year 2021. Recertification is included in meeting registration. Attendance at the entire meeting is required for recertification.
