Virtual small grain workshops registration now available

Minnesota State University Extension
Farm Forum

Virtual workshops addressing successful small grain management have been scheduled in February. Whether you’re a farmer or crop consultant already producing small grains, or looking for another crop to add to the rotation, these workshops are for you.

The workshops will be informal conversations around production agronomics, variety selection, economics and soil fertility. While they’ll focus on small grain production in southern Minnesota, workshops are open and applicable to all small grain producers.

Panelists include Jochum Wiersma, University of Minnesota Extension small grain specialist; Jared Goplen, University of Minnesota Extension crops educator; and Daniel Kaiser, University of Minnesota Extension soil fertility specialist.
