Landmark to host 3rd Annual Crop Management Field Seminar
The third annual Crop Management Field Seminar is being hosted by Landmark Services Cooperative.
This year the seminars will be offered at two different locations within their geography.
Our first event takes place on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the East Troy Answer Plot located at the Intersection of Hwy. 120 and Kniep Rd.
The second event, on Thursday, Sept. 13, will be located at their Stoughton Answer Plot near the Intersection of Hwy. N and Koshkonong Rd. Both events are slated to run from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m.
"Planning for Profits…On Purpose" is the theme of this year's event that is targeted towards educating growers on key steps to help them reach higher yields.
Dr. Scott Murrell from the International Plant Nutrition Institute will be the keynote speaker for both events. He will be discussing all aspects of a successful plant nutrition program, and targeting key nutrients including: Potash, Copper, Sulfur, Boron, Calcium and Manganese.
Dr. Murrell has received numerous awards and recognitions in various professional service organizations and peer reviewed publications including: Scientific Reviewer, Wisconsin Fertilizer Research Program, ASA Northcentral Branch President- 2010, and Measuring Nutrient Removal, Calculating Nutrient Budgets- 2010.
Following the keynote speakers, attendees will have the opportunity to attend breakout sessions on a Root Pit Dig, YieldEDGE Precision Agriculture-How to Implement Precision Agriculture to bring higher yields, and Building and Managing On-Farm Grain Storage.
The breakout sessions will feature Landmark's experts in Grain and Agronomy teaming up to provide grain producers with the tools needed for successful crop production.
