Farmers and crop advisers have an opportunity to receive corn production information during a virtual Getting it Right 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, and Ryan Buetow, Dickinson Research Extension Center. The North Dakota Corn Utilization Council is supporting the event.

“We have been conducting virtual crop production Getting it Right 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 previously has included soybean, dry bean, canola, flax and sunflower.”

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