Reading soil test results and understanding the meaning of those results is just one of several topics that will be discussed during the West Ohio Agronomy  offered by Ohio State University Extension and Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center researchers, educators and agronomists.

Open to growers statewide, the program is designed to help growers produce higher yields while maintaining a strong financial bottom line.

Some of the topics participants will learn about in the courses include:   

Correct rate of pesticides mixed in the tank    

Soybean yield-limiting factors in west central Ohio   

Insect management in field crops   

New recommendations for nutrient application   

Cover crops   

Resistant weed management   

Fumigation   

Manure management and fly control   

Introduction to precision agriculture

The program will also feature a grain market update and will offer programs for farmers looking for Private Pesticide Applicator Recertification Credits, as well as programs that offer Continuing Education Units for Certified Crop Advisers.

Participants can attend a morning or evening session of the workshop. The morning session runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the evening session runs from 5:30 to 9:45 p.m. A light breakfast and lunch will be served during the daytime session and a light dinner will be served during the evening session. Registration is $10 by Jan. 3, 2014, and $15 after that date. For those needing Private Pesticide Recertification Credits, the cost is $35; pre-registration materials can be found online.
