It does not take long to figure out that planting 2022’s crop is going to be significantly more expensive that this past year. Between supply disruption, industry labor issues and a host of other issues, inputs for the next crop are going to cost more.

Farmers will need to make the best decision possible to protect profitability in 2022. Ohio State is hosting a free virtual webinar series looking at critical decisions concerning where to invest technology dollars, fertility management and best management practices for crops.

Learn from top industry, private sector and university experts on issues important to farm profitability in 2022 and beyond.

Each webinar will open at 11:30 a.m. for participants to log in and check audio settings. The program will start at 11:45 a.m. and last until 1 p.m.
