Agronomy Day sessions set

Sharpening the pencil to analyze the profitability of crop production practices is more important than ever with commodity prices at or below production costs.

Learn about advances made to help manage white mold, mycotoxins in corn silage and winter wheat diseases. When is there an economic return to using fungicides in our cropping systems? Have weather patterns really changed? What does the Wisconsin climatological data tell us? What are corn and soybean ending stocks telling us about supply and demand and prices for 2018?

These are among the topics to be discussed at the 2018 Agronomy Day planned for Thursday, Feb. 22, 10 a.m. at the Five Pillars Restaurant, Random Lake.

Presentations and speakers include:

“Managing Crop Diseases” will be discussed by Damon Smith, UW-Madison/UW-Extension plant pathologist.

Shawn Conley, UW-Madison/UW-Extension soybean specialist, shares information on, “Tweaking Soybean Production Practices.”

“Has the Weather Really Changed?” will be discussed by Ed Hopkins, PhD, assistant Wisconsin state climatologist.

Naomi Blohm, senior market advisor, Steward Peterson Group Inc., will provide a “Grain Market Outlook for 2018.”
