Agronomy Field Day scheduled for Aug. 26

Aug. 12, 2014 | 0 comments


The annual agronomy field day sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Extension Service in cooperation with the Country Visions Cooperative will be held Tuesday, Aug. 26 at the Ed Montsma Farm, off Highway 151 just north of County Road TC in Fond du Lac County.

Held adjacent to the corn hybrid, soybean variety and herbicide field plots, the three-session program will run from 10:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Two of the sessions will be presented at both 10:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., while the marketing update for corn, soybeans and wheat presented by Extension Service marketing specialist Brenda Boetel will be offered only at 1:30 p.m.

At one of the two sessions being offered twice, the topics will be fertilizer technology updates by Country Visions agronomist Brian Madigan; a review of glyphosate resistance in waterhemp and other pigweeds by Extension Service weed management specialist Vince Davis; and observations on the herbicide plots at the site by Jeff Laufenberg of Syngenta Crop Protection.

The other session being offered twice will have Fond du Lac County crops and soils agent Mike Rankin sharing observations on the maturity timetable for 2014 corn and soybean crops; Extension Service corn agronomist Joe Lauer reporting on maximum yield systems research for corn; and Extension Service soybean agronomist Shawn Conley contemplating the best way to invest crop production dollars if the market price for soybeans falls to $8 per bushel.

There is no cost or registration requirement to attend the field. Because of the late development of the year's corn crop, there will not be a corn stalk drydown project in anticipation of making corn silage.
