Two K-State Corn Production Management Schools will be offered in early January 2015 in northeast and central Kansas. Each school will provide in-depth training targeted for corn producers. Primary sponsors of the schools include the Kansas Corn Commission and DuPont Pioneer.
The one-day schools will cover current corn topics relevant to corn producers in Kansas: drought-tolerant hybrids, high-yielding corn factors, weed control, soil fertility, and price and market perspectives.
The schools will begin at 9 a.m. and adjourn at 2 p.m., followed by a tour of facilities. The dates and locations are:
